Nothing to see inside Wada ( Traditional Mansion House). No information available about the place. No display boards. Outer/boundary wall is great to see from outside.

Only collection of entry fee.

Not worth to visit.

Shaniwar wada built by the great Bajirao Peshwa is worth visiting if you have interest in our history. The entry gate is megalomanias and attracts you. The property is with Archeological department and a ticket of Rs 25 is charged as entry fee. Inside it is a big garden and large rampart all along the Shaniwar Wada. One must have a walk over it. The wooden pillars and shafts on the first floor attracts you and reminds of good old golden days.

This is one of the most prominent places in Pune.
This was the capital of Maratha Kingdom from where the peshwa's operated.

This place became famous after the hindi film Bajirao Mastane was released. Home of the Bajirao Peshwa, this place has a rich history. Its a fort like structure with stone walls enclosing what used to be a 7 storied wooden palace. Back in time, the Britishers plundered this palace, looting all the riches and setting the wooden palace on fire. It is said that the fire kept burning for more than a month before the palace was fully burnt down to its foundations. So al that remains is the foundation and the fort walls. The grand entrance with a wooden viewing gallery adds to its grandeur.
However, for the price of the entrance fee of rupees 25, there is virtually no tourist conveniences in place. The makeshift parking space is very small, no toilets and not even benches to sit, for the elderly.

It's heart breaking to see the shoddy state of our heritage sites.The maintenance is pathetic and a detailed history would have been welcome.The authorities could have had a small museum in the premises with some history and artefacts.A miniature of the old wada would have been a visual treat and given us a glimpse of the bygone era.Why can't corporates take up our heritage sites as CSR projects if our governments do not have the funds to spend on preserving our heritage?
