MAg ekdacha Shaniwar wada madhe pohachalo.
SHANIWARWADA - Thanks to Bajirao Mastani, we know of Shaniwarwada and the people it housed. Walk through the parapet and look beyond, you can only imagine how grand it used to be. The walk through the parapet also gives a great view of the city and the adjacent Nanawada building. They have a few information planks but they just left me wanting more knowledge. Hopefully it will be better restored in the future.
Built like a magnificent architecture, you'll be struck by a look at it! This fort is known for having witnessed a high level of supernatural activity and the story is that, the fort is haunted by the spirit of a dead young prince who was murdered here. It's also said that on full moon nights, one can hear the words, “Kaka Mala Vachva” (“uncle save me”), which were the final words of the prince emanating from the fort! Scary huh! Entry is restricted after 6:00 p.m. So, you know what to do!
3:30 PM: After leaving the museum we wandered through the hilly lanes of this part of the city, had a local Pav-Bhaji lunch and proceeded towards Shaniwarwada. Well, its not really the place you look forward to visiting in Pune, especially not on weekends. Long lines, lots of crowd, not much to explore and traffic noises is all we faced. Shaniwarwada is located amidst the city traffic and pollution. The serenity of Aga Khan Palace turned out to be much more captivating to me.
कोई पुणे आये और शनिवार वाड़ा न जाए ऐसा हो ही नहीं सकता।यह पुणे की सबसे लोकप्रिय जगहों में से एक है। इसका निर्माण पेशवा बाजीराव प्रथम ने करवाया था। इस विशाल महल की भव्यता इसके परिसर में स्थित फव्वारों और बगीचों से और बढ़ जाती है। इस महल के प्रवेश द्वार पर बाजीराव पेशवा की मूर्ति आपका स्वागत करती है।मस्तानी महल
