Western Ghats

Tackling the steep slopes, dense jungles, unbearable heat, incessant rains, diseases, landslides and wild animals that define the Western Ghats was an ambitious endeavor. The railway track was achieved by an amalgamation of the best of engineering expertise, machinery and skilled labourers toiling under inhospitable conditions. The majority of the workforce consisted of mainly South Asians who were involved in the daunting task of digging and moving earth and rock. At the peak of its construction there were around 16000 people, hailing from Afghanistan to Ceylon, employed in the Ghats.

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.
