collection of artefacts, utensils and earthen ware waits to greet you if you
decide to visit the famous Raja Dinkar Kelkar Museum! Located in the older part
of the city; Shanivar Peth, it houses an extensive collection of antiques like
musical instruments, lamps, paintings, weapons and ivory artefacts, collected
from all over the country.
most noteworthy is the recreated Mastani Mahal, which is based on the palace
that Bajirao Peshva created for his concubine and danseuse, Mastani. Legend has
it, that her beauty was so mesmerizing that he felt she needed nothing less
than a palace all to herself. Of all the historical tourist places in Pune,
this is perhaps the most astounding!
