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. Even though the place has so many options on its platter, there are some places which are must visit while you are in this urban city. Take a look:

  • Osho Ashram

    Located in
    Koregaon Park, the Osho Ashram is a must visit for you if you want to experience spirituality and peace. When we talk about Osho Rajneesh, you must be knowing that he is a renowned spiritual guru whose teachings are followed and practiced in every part of the globe. No wonder, the ashram attracts thousands of devotees from all over the world who want to be a part of the meditation programmes that are offered here. You will love to take a stroll in the beautiful gardens which are open to the public in the mornings and evenings.

    Address: Osho International Foundation
    # 17, North Main Road
    Koregaon Park

  • Ganesh Mahotsav

    We all have seen in movies the boisterous and colorful celebrations of Ganesh Chaturthi in Maharashtra. Being a part of the same state, Pune also participates in these celebrations with all gusto and vigour. Visit the Ganesh Pandals in the city and on the final day, join in the procession for the immersion of the idol of Lord Ganesh, lovingly called Ganpati Bappa. Lose yourself to the energy, rhythm and dance of the moment and get decked in the brilliant colours of Maharashtra.

  • Shaniwar Wada Fort

    You would inadvertently make your way to this beautiful fort which has an interesting tale attached with it. It is said that Shaniwar Wada Fort is haunted and legends have their say that this is the place where Narayan Rao Peshwa, the boy king, was murdered. The 18th century monument still looks majestic with its impressive doorways, plinths and huge walls. Make sure you don’t miss the sparkling light & sound show which is held there every evening. Surrounded by five gates, Dilli Darwaza, Mastani Darwaja, Khidki Darwaja, Ganesh Darwaja and Jambhul Darwaja or Narayan Darwaja, the fort is adorned with grand palaces with a beautiful garden. You will also love the interesting lotus-shaped fountain which is a real visual treat.
