Shaniwar Wada

The Shaniwar Wada Palace was commissioned in the year of 1729 when Peshwa Baji Rao I ruled Pune. The scale on which this construction was carried out reflected the Peshwa’s larger than like attitude. The place is filled with tanks, fruit trees, sprawling courtyards, halls where the ruler would hold an audience, office rooms and a large portion where the Peshwa would stay. This place has a total of five gates each with a distinct name - Ganesh, Dilli, Narayan, Khidhi, Mastani and Jambhul darwazas. The place is royal and majestic and one cannot afford to give it a miss. The authorities also conduct a light and sound show.
After getting over the interview, there was still enough time left, so we decided to visit few local places in Pune. We started from the historic place of Maratha Empire, The Erstwhile Seat of the Peshwas: Shaniwar Wada. The name Shaniwar Wada is derived from two Marathi words – Shaniwar meaning Saturday and Wada meaning a residential complex. Being an interior designer by profession, I am way too much interested in history: the architectures, the interiors and the stories behind them. Its seems to be more fascinating to me.Shaniwar Wada Information:Location Bajirao Road, Shaniwar PethTimings 8:00 am to 6:30 pm; every dayEntry Fee ₹ 25 for Indians; ₹ 125 for foreignersYear of Construction 1732Commissioned byPeshwa Baji Rao I (a general under Chhatrapati Shahu Maharaj of the Maratha Empire)

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.

A famous historical landmark located in Pune. It was the seat of peshwas during the Maratha empire. Nice place to spend a lazy afternoon in the sun. It is said to be haunted, don’t know if it’s true.Want to know the story of Shaniwar Wada? Stay back till the evening for an informative light and sound show.
