What you Can Expect:
Start your tour with a pickup 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-storey 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 South Indian lunch at a famous local restaurant before we explore our next destination.
After lunch, visit Parvati Hills where you will find Parvati Temple atop the hillock. This is one of the most scenic locations in Pune. The temple is the oldest heritage structure in Pune and was built during the rule of the Peshwa dynasty.
Our next destination is Darshan Museum, dedicated to the noted Sindhi Saint and scholar, Sadhu T. L. Vaswani. It is a biographical museum that offers an insight into the life and therefore the teachings of Sadhu Vaswani. This museum has been made by using a vast palette of museum based technologies; like real life mannequins, graphic panels, holographic screens, interactive, audio-visual material, films, etc.
To end your tour, your driver will drop you back off at your hotel.
