Shaniwar Wada

Fort in Pune

The remains of this fortressed palace of the Peshwa rulers are located in the old part of the city. Built in 1732, Shaniwar Wada was destroyed by a fire in 1828, but the massive walls and ramparts remain, as does a mighty fortified gateway.

On Wednesday to Monday evenings there’s a 40-minute sound-and-light show at 7.30pm and 8.30pm, though only in Marathi.
