Bustling and commercial, leafy and slow, cosmopolitan and vintage, Pune (Poona) effortlessly adds up to more than the sum of its parts. It is a city where history often asserts itself, but with a careless lightness.
Celebrated as Maharashtra's cultural capital, Pune (Poona) houses a plethora of educational institutes, museums and hill forts. Besides being a cultural and educational hub, Pune (Poona) has ample attractions to satiate most visitors. Pune, with its glorious Maratha history and Osho connection, a host of sightseeing attractions, pleasant weather, and a largely dynamic crowd of students and young professionals, proves wonderful for a vacation. The list of not to be missed attractions is infinite here but a couple of most interesting hot spots are the Pataleshwar Rock-cut temple and the Sinhagad Fort. The temple is dedicated to martyred Maratha heroes, while the fort is well for a grand Maratha triumph over Mughal invaders.

Lastly, this is the city where Shivaji spent his childhood. This was the capital of the Maratha confederacy at the height of its power — the Peshwas’ Pune. This is where the British defeated the Marathas in 1817, making it their monsoon capital (Pune (Poona) being drier than Mumbai), laying grounds for the graceful cantonment of today. This is where Lokmanya Tilak brought out his newspaper and where the British imprisoned Mahatma Gandhi for two years.
