The earliest evidence found is that of copper plates belonging to 758 A. D. and of 768 A. D. The citys historical associations are fast woven with Shivaji Maharaj , the Peshwas and Lokmanya Tilak. When Bajirao-I became the Peshwa, he made Pune the headquarters of the army and the Shaniwar Wada was built. In 1820 the Peshwas were dethroned and the British established a permanent Army Cantonment. Since then it has moved gracefully from the past into the present.
Peace and Prosperity are two words synonymous with Pune city, which is internationally acclaimed for its educational traditions and communal harmony. Students come here not only from all over India but from all over the world. Apart from students, a large number of foreigners are drawn to the BKS Iyengar Yoga Institute, and the Osho Center. Pune is, in fact a potpourri of the old and the new. What makes it tick is a harmonious blend between the two. This growing metropolis brings to the mind a myriad of images - ancient forts, ornate palaces, shopping arcades, educational institutions, Temples, mosques, and churches and rolling hills. The Ganapati festival celebrated yearly, called the Pune Festival, has made its mark on the tourist map of India.
The Socio-economic profile of Pune is also being transformed with its fast-growing urban area and growth in industry and technology. It has also become the nerve center for IT-BT, automobiles and real estate among other things. The city is a cultural centre for theater, music, dance and film; and represents a synthesis of modern science and ancient wisdom, a dynamic hub of educational, technological and industrial activities. No wonder then that it is the Cultural and intellectual capital of Maharashtra. Pune is also home to well known giants of the Indian software industry like Wipro, Infosys, Sat yam, Tata Technologies, TCS, Kanbay, Veritas, Cognizant, PCS and Mahindra British Telecom. The city boasts of the National Defense Academy, Institute of Military Engineering, the Film and Television Institute, Armed Forces Medical College, and College of Archaeological studies.
Pune is definitely marching toward achieving international stature and repute, and developing into a globally recognized, vibrant and dynamic education and industry based economy.
There was a time when Pune was known as a Pensioners Paradise – home to those who had retired and wanted a peaceful life in a salubrious environment. Now of course Pune has grown into a vibrant metro, a hub of education, industry, information technology, entertainment, and so on. But what makes Pune still more significant is that it is a place from where you can plan several exciting trips to hill-stations, forts, and places of pilgrimage, not to forget an adventurous package too.
Apart from the many interesting places just beyond the city limits of Pune, such as the Sinhagad Fort or the backwaters of the Khadakvasla Dam, tourists always make it a point to visit the twin hill-stations of Lonavala and Khandala for its bracing weather and the wonderful views you get of the valley and the snaking highway that leads to Mumbai. Lonavla is about 64 kilometers away from Pune and has several points that offer breathtaking views of nature at her best. One of these is the Rajmachi Point which commands a view of Chhatrapati Shivajis famous fort, Rajmachi, and the surrounding valley. Lonavala is also known for its chikki and fudge. Some of the other spots include the Ryewood Park and the Valvan Dam which has a garden at its foot. On the way to Khandala you can visit the Dukes Nose which is popular with trekkers.
Yet another pair of hill-stations easily accessible from Pune are Panchgani and Mahabaleshwar. Located about 120 kilometers southwest of Pune, Mahabaleshwar is a vast plateau measuring 150 kilometers, bound by valleys on all sides. It reaches a height of 1,439 meters at its highest peak above sea level, known as Wilson or Sunrise Point. With its name derived from Sanskrit and meaning god of great power, Mahabaleshwar has lots to explore. Arthurs Seat is one such interesting point from where you can get a view of Jor Valley. Another exotic location is Lodwick Point, located almost 1,240 meters above sea level. Some of the other points that you must visit are Monkey Point, Carnac Point, Falkland Point, Helens Point, Elphinstone Point, Mumbai Point, Marjorie Point and Babbington Point. For boating you must head to the Venna Lake.
Panchgani, about 100 kilometers from Pune, is nestled in the middle of five hills in the Sahyadri mountain ranges topped by a volcanic plateau, which is the second-highest in Asia after the Tibetan Plateau. This plateau, popularly known as Table Land, is a part of the Deccan Plateau. Some of the points that you must visit are Sydney Point from where you can see the waters of the Dhom Dam, Parsi Point that overlooks the Krishna valley and Devils Kitchen which has a mythological legend associated with it - it is believed that the Pandavas of the Mahabharat epic had stayed here for a while.
If you would like to see the magnificence of Indian art and history, you must make it a point to visit the caves of Karla and Bhaja, located about 15 kilometers from Lonavla. The more popular Karla Caves date back to 1st century BCE. After a trek uphill through the winding roads, the impressive rock-cut structure includes the stupa, a representation of the Buddha, and an aisle made up of 37 pillars and carved elephant heads, which once had real ivory tusks. Just outside Karla Caves lies the Ekvira Temple, the chief shrine of the Koli (fishing community) and is visited by thousands of devotees every year. Exactly opposite the Karla ridge lie the Bhaja Caves dating to 2nd century BCE.
From Kamshet one can also visit the Bhedse caves. They are also dated to 1st century CE.
For the history lovers the forts Visapur and Lohagad are just close to the Bhaja caves.
If you would like to see nature at its best and also pack in a little adventure, one of the best choices, especially during the monsoon, is Tamhini Ghat. It is during this time that the deep brown hills turn a verdant green and provide a feast for the eyes. The value addition is that you can also explore the backwaters of Mulshi Dam and spice up your vacation with a bit of river rafting.
If it is adventure you seek, head towards Kamshet, just 45 kilometers from Pune. In recent times it has become a hub for paragliders and the world-class facilities that have sprung up here attract a great number of flying sport aficionados to the place. One of the most popular sites for paragliding is Tower Hill which is the destination for hand gliding. Another one is Shelar which offers ideal conditions for soaring and thermal paragliding. Here, you can take off from a height of 175 feet above ground level. Kondeshwar Cliff, about 20 kilometers from Kamshet, is for the hardcore paragliding enthusiasts looking for some challenging flying adventure. It offers the right elevation of 2,200 feet for those with a head for heights.
And if it is still a hill-station that you would like to spend some time at, Matheran is yet another wonderful option. The best part about going to Matheran, the starting point for which is the railway station of Neral on the Mumbai-Pune route, is that you can buy a ride on the tiny train that traverses the narrow gauge track to the top, offering you on the way breathtaking sights even as it negotiates the bends and the curves. The train makes its way around the verdant slopes and through thick forest cover. Matheran is known as the pedestrian hill-station because all vehicles have to per force stop at Dasturi and tourists have to either walk or hitch a horse ride into Matheran. The hill-station in itself is an undulating hilltop cloaked in shady trees and ringed by walking trails leading to several vantage points from where you can have stunning views. It is also marked by its market place – a single street – which houses restaurants and shops.
And if a pilgrimage is on your itinerary too, go to Jejuri, situated on a 758-meter high hillock about 80 kilometers away from Pune. The temple here is a huge complex with the shrines of various deities, including its resident lord, Khandoba. In fact, there are two temples of Khandoba at Jejuri, one older than the other, both built at the end of the outlying spur of the Purandar range which sinks into the plains here. The newer one is larger and stands about 84 meters above the town. The smaller temple is believed to be more sacred.
To seek the blessings of Lord Ganesha, there can be nothing better than to go Ranjangaon, 51 kilometers from Pune on the road to Ahmednagar. The majestic temple is the fourth in the ashtavinayaka circuit. It faces east and has a huge entrance with two large-sized dwarapalas on either side. The temple is designed in such a way that during dakshinayan and uttarayan (movement of the sun to the south and north) the rays of the sun fall directly on the deity. The image of Mahaganapati is seated, faces east and has his trunk to the left. The forehead of the deity is exceptionally broad. Here, Bhadrapad Chaturthi is celebrated in a big way.
There are direct flights from Mumbai airport to Pune.
There are many trains which connect Mumbai to Pune. The train journey is very convenient and goes through the scenic Khandala ghats.
These two cities are very well connected by road. There are State transport buses as well as private buses which ply between Pune and Mumbai. The expressway has reduced the travel time between the two cities by approximately two hours. The expressway starts at Kalamboli (near Panvel), and ends at Dehu Rd. (near Pune).
