A heritage walk through Phule Market and the old district


After reaching Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Mandai by car we start our walk. Mandai has Gothic style and houses vegetables and fruits. Almost everything is available in this bazzar.
Down the road is a small Rameshwar ( Shiva) temple built in 1770. A very peaceful place in crowded market.
Then we walk towards Burud Ali at the back of Mandai. Buruds are bamboo craftsmen. . making bamboo baskets, ladders and blinds etc. Finding our way through crowd we go to Pune Nagar Vachan Mandir, 1889 , The first Pune library for natives.
A short walk towards north brings us to Laxmi rd. , a shoppers paradise. Few old two storied houses can be seen with wooden work and wrought iron railings.
Opposite to Pune Nagar Vachan Mandir is Belbaug Vishnu Mandir, built by Nana Phadnavis, the chief administrator of the Peshwas.
Short walk along colourful shops on Laxmi rd brings us to Vishrambaug Wada, 1807. This fine mansion was residence of Bajirao II.

A Recent Review of this tour

Absolutely wonderful tour. All the temples and historical sites were brought to life with Pratibha's narratives. Also, the Tulsi Baug markets are a must for shoppers. I really enjoyed my tour today, mainly because Pratibha was so knowlegeable, relaxed and flexible.
