Pune, a small settlement along the banks of the Mutha river, rose to power in the 18th century. Though the city flourished under the able command of the Peshwas, the foundation of Pune can be traced back to a much earlier period. Though major parts of the city were built and rebuilt over a period of time, a few remains of the past still stand, reminding us of the glory of the city. Beginning with Shaniwar Wada, we will walk through the historic core of Pune and try to understand the core city as it was and as it stands today.
