Shaniwar Wada Palace, Pune Reviews
Its a great fort to visit. When i had visited the climate was awesome. I totally enjoyed it. Its considered to be one of the haunted place and entry is restricted after 5pm local time. Also its a quite, clean & silent place. One can go and relax themselves.
पेशवे कुटुंब शनिवारवाड्यात वास्तव्यास होते. या वाड्याची तटबंदी व्यवस्थित असून आतील महाल पडले असल्याने फक्त सदर महालाचे पायाचे अवशेष पहावयास मिळतात. या ठिकाणी पाण्याचे मोठे हौद असून कारंजी सुद्धा आहेत. बकुळीच्या झाडाखाली यज्ञकुंड आहे. पूर्वीच्या भुयारी मार्गाचे अवशेष पहावयास मिळतात. वाड्यात विविध मोठे वृक्ष आहेत. चुहुकडे हिरवळ आहे. छोटे-छोटे बगीचे आहेत. सदर वाडा व्यवस्थित पहावयाचा असेल तर साधारणतः 2 तास लागतात. सदर वाड्यात प्रवेश करताना प्रवेश फी घेतली जाते. वाड्यात शौचालयाची सुविधा नाही.
One of the best historical place at Pune. Situated at heart of the city. Worth a visit. Though most of the remains are gone and it's plain once looked casually. Yet you can imagine and frame how each and everything has been built. At the entrance, we are welcomed by a massive gate which gives a mammoth look to the place. Loved the time spent there.
Shaniwar Wada is a place of historical importance. It was the home for the Peshwas of the Maratha Empire. There are local guides available to explain the place in detail. Newly introduced, they have a sound and light show in the evening post 7. It is available in two languages- Hindi and Marathi. The ticket is 50rs for adults and 30rs for children. The best time to go around is post 4 so that you can go about the Wada and then later watch the sound and light show.
This place remains open till 5:30 in the evening. It's a good place to visit. Very less part of the fort remains so there isn't much to see inside but you can sit inside and spend some quality time with your loved ones.
