Full description
Start your tour with a pic-up from your hotel in Pune. Before you begin, your guide will go through the itinerary of your full-day tour. Your first visit is to Aga Khan Palace, built in 1892. It holds a significant role in India’s independence as Mahatma Gandhi and his wife were imprisoned here. Next visit the Pataleshwar Caves, an 8th-century rock-cut cave temple dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva. Spend around 30 minutes here then visit Raja Dinkar Museum, which holds over 20,000 objects with 2,500 of which are on display. The three-story building houses various sculptures dating back to the 14th century. One part of particular interest is the “Mastani Mahal”. Raja Kelkar made an attempt at depicting the palace of Mastani, (wife of the Peshwa Baji Rao I) with its remnants. Enjoy a delicious lunch at a famous local restaurant (Own Expense) before you explore your next destination. Next, Visit Dagadusheth Halwai Ganapati Temple, dedicated to the Hindu God Ganesh. The temple is popular in Maharashtra and is visited by thousands of pilgrims every year. Devotees of the temple include celebrities and Chief Ministers of Maharashtra who visit during the annual ten-day Ganeshotsav festival. The main Ganesh idol is insured for a sum of 10 million Indian rupees (US$160,000). Next, Visit Shaniwarwada a historical fortification in the city of Pune in Maharashtra, India. Built in 1732, it was the seat of the Peshwas of the Maratha Empire until 1818, when the Peshwas lost control to the British East India Company after the Third Anglo-Maratha War. Following the rise of the Maratha Empire, the palace became the center of Indian politics in the 18th century. At the end of the tour, get dropped off back to the hotel.

Unfortunately, Guide had little idea

Our guide was a nice guy, but unfortunately he had practically no idea about Pune. We ran through the program, but he had hardly any information ready to increase our knowledge. Only during lunch together did we learn something about the culinary customs in India. But that's about it ...
