Must Do

Caves in the middle of the city  

Visit the eighth-century Pataleshwar Caves (in the middle of the city). In the evening, catch a sound and light show at Shaniwar Wada, which was originally built for the Peshwas (successors of Shivaji) in 1736 but burned down in 1828. However, the imposing walls, the pinths still stand tall, as do the palace doors with their fierce spikes. Today it is one of Pune's main cultural symbols.
