After a brief orientation, walk through the city to visit several places of historical and cultural significance: 
The temple of Kasba Ganpati, to see the Elephant God who is the patron deity of Pune. No new venture is started in Pune without this god’s blessings!

Nana Wada, the estate of Nana Phadnavis, chief administrator of the Peshwa rulers of Pune. The estate now houses a school.

Lal Mahal, the site where Chhatrapati Shivaji lived.

Tulshibaug, to see the tall shikara of this traditional Vaishnavite temple, and observe the homes and shops inside the temple courtyard. You can also visit a popular local market for women’s costume jewellery and knick knacks.

Jyotiba Phule Mandai, to experience the vibrant bustle of Pune’s largest covered market selling vegetables, fruits, prayer paraphranelia, utensils, clothes and many other things.

Shreemant Dagdusheth Halwai Ganapati – the most endearing deity to devotees. This is the epitome of pride and honour to the city of Pune. 

Bangle Sellers Lane, adjacent to Jyotiba Phule Mandai, to see traditional bangle shops.

Burud Ali, to see Pune’s community of basket makers.

The tour ends at Vishrambaug Wada, built by the last Peshwa Baji Rao II as a house of leisure. If you’d like to take back a souvenir from the walk, there’s a small shop inside Vishrambaug run by a local NGO, that sells eco-friendly handcrafted garments, ornaments and bags.
