Pune has long enjoyed a reputation as a center of culture and commerce, with many dynastic rulers making the town central to their regional plans in the centuries before the British Raj.
Dagadusheth Halwai Ganapati Temple and ISKCON NVCC Temple will appeal to history buffs. Head to Phule Market and Studio Copprefor plenty of shopping. There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sri Balaji Mandir, step into the grandiose world of Sinhagad Fort, examine the collection at Raja Dinkar Kelkar Museum, and look for all kinds of wild species at Taljai Hill.
