Day 1

Pune is blassed with glorifying history of Maratha's, topclass univercities and plesent weather. City has adopted modernization maintaining the history and keeping the Puneri attitude intact. Though Pune has thousands of famious places some of historic gems are still untouches and underrated.


Start your day with having breakfast at yazdan cafe at sharbatwala chowk near M.G Chowk. It had started in 1962 and is one of the very first cafe's in Pune. Its famious for their Irani chai, banmaska and scrambled eggs. But they serves many other dishes as well. Its historic,has Irani vibe and pocketfriendly.

After breakfast you can headover to Mahadji Shinde Chhatri which is situated in Wanowrie. It is a memorial for Maratha Sardar Mahadji Shinde and was built in 1974. though it isn't too old, its architecture makes us remember the huge placeses of Rajsthan. Even in hot sunny day its so cool and calm inside. Less tourist and less crowd makes it perfeclty peaceful.
