Shaniwar Wada Palace, Pune Reviews

  • Nice place to spend time, but most of the part is destroyed. Govt has still able to maintain few places.. you have to pay ₹15 as entry fee and get a token, submit when you return.. very limited parking area.. you can have tasty street foods near by.. few spots are restored and reconstructed.. overall good to visit..

  • Shaniwar wada is a great place to visit to enrich your historical knowledge. They have maintained it very well although it has become old. They even have put up boards at every important point describing what is that place and why was it important. It was a nice experience.

  • Nice history for those interested. Couples spend their peace and fun time here sometimes. Which is indeed hideous. The maintenance by the board in concern isn't appreciable. However the place by itself is brilliant if you learn to ignore everything else.

  • So pretty even after being burned down. Very well maintained as a monumental history depicts its own story. With a very affordable entry fees for Indians. The best part being the flag that is hoisted which gives a very patriotic feel at a historic place. Love it.

  • A very good historical place. Not much things available now but the lser show is a good experience. The details are informative. The sound system is very best. Has surround sound. Very good effect.
