Detroit of India or the cultural capital of Maharashtra, Pune has a wide offer to do justice to every epithet that seeks to do so. It is no wonder that the Indian city has remained forever as the preferred destination of travelers in its historical appeal and natural charm. The following are some of the best places you should definitely go to while in Pune so you know which epithet best describes this vibrant city.

Shaniwar Wada

Shaniwar Wada is a historical monument in Pune city. Shaniwar Wada is a Peshwa period building. This place was the residence of Peshwas. The palace was built in the year 1736 by the first Bajirao Peshwa. At that time, this palace was considered a symbol of the glorious culture of Pune. However, the British captured the fort and set it on fire. Now all the remains in these buildings have been destroyed. The foundation of the castle and part of the ramparts are still standing. While visiting this castle, you can definitely enjoy the view of a historical building.

Lal Mahal

Literally translated as the Red Palace, the Lal Mahal in Pune is truly a visual wonder to rave about and live in all its glory. Easily one of the city's most famous monuments, the Lal Mahal has its own legion of history to boast of, being the childhood home of the valiant ruler Shivaji who is also witness to many of his successive acts of valor. A truly striking architectural specimen, the Lal Mahal in Pune draws tourists to East Oxford for its dose of revered history.

Dagdusheth Halwai Temple

A famous pilgrimage site for devotees from across the country, the Dagdusheth Halwai Temple is another very prominent tourist attraction in Pune. With its grand annual ten-day Ganeshotsav celebrations, this temple sees crowds of people frenzy and live the hype in observance of Lord Ganesh, the reigning deity of the temple. The more than a century old temple was built by a candy maker Shrimant Dagdusheth Halwai Dagdusheth Shrivastav in a beautiful construction that stands out even in its simplicity. Located in the heart of the city of Pune, the temple is wonderful for more than one reason. Whether it is the magnificence of the idol that is visible from quite a distance or its very golden avatar that has led it to be insured by a whopping $ 10 million.

Vishrambaug Wada

Vishrambaug Wada was the residence of Peshwa II Bajirao. The other Bajirao preferred to stay in the resting place rather than in the ancestral Shaniwarwada. Now Pune Municipal Corporation has started a cultural center at this place.

Aga Khan Palace

One of the best places to visit in Pune has to be the magnificent Aga Khan Palace. A monument of national importance that has been in existence for more than a century since 1892, the Palace is an excellent architectural specimen and, as it is revered, a place of historical importance. Spread over some 19 acres of land, the truly majestic palace has Italian arches and spacious gardens spanning five rooms and remains seated in a green setting.
