  • Pune is a city with a future that promises to be as interesting as its history. Long-standing bastion of the Maratha Empire and home to the legendary Raja Shivaji, Pune district is marked by magnificent land and forts that are a testimony to its glorious past.
    Pune was once the centre of the entire Maratha Empire, in which education, arts, crafts and theatre thrived. Known as the ‘Oxford of the East”, it houses one of India’s oldest universities and numerous colleges that attract both Indian and international students.
    The narrow winding roads of the old Pune offer an interesting contrast to the open and spacious new city. Pune is slowly becoming a cosmopolitan city and is already an important commercial centre. However, Pune retains the old-world charm and its many quaint characteristics, including the omnipresent cyclists, rickshaws and a daily siesta hour that is taken very seriously indeed.
