About Shaniwar Wada

Shaniwar Wada Pune is a fort-like palace built in 1732 reflecting the glory of the bygone era of the Peshwas and home of the famous chieftain Shivaji. The palace overlooks the surrounding city of Pune, and its strategic location makes it a beautiful spot to be in during sunrise and sunset. You can also click great photographs as you walk on the ramparts. Shaniwar Wada was built by the father of Shivaji and was the seat of power of the Maratha Empire. It was named after Peshwa Bajirao Balal Balaji Bhat and is the oldest heritage site in Pune. After the sunset, wait a while, to watch the sound and light show replete with sounds of battle. Hire a guide and go on a walking tour to the nearby Nana Wada Palace and the Dagdu Sheth temple dedicated to Lord Ganesha. Pune has plenty of interesting places to stay near Shaniwar Wada Pune which allow you to feel the pulse of the area and its culture. Look for hotels near Shaniwar Wada such as Rukhmini Niwas, Hotel Ketan, JW Marriott Pune and Sheraton Grand Pune.

Pro Tip: Visit the Lakshmi Market nearby if you are interested in shopping locally.
