The landmark of Pune — Shanivarwada, does not only have a story of a ghost but also lesser known story of the lost treasure of the Peshwas. It is well known that the structure of Shanivarwada which is in existence now, is only 1/10th of the once 7 stored palace of the Peshwas aka the Prime ministers of the Maratha Kingdom. In the year 1828, a huge fire destroyed the glorious palace of Peshwas which was filled with riches of gold, diamonds, gems and impeccable jewellery. When the palace was on fire, a lot of the Peshwa women and children decided to take the secret passage that connected Shanivarwada to Parvati hills. On their escape, they carried tones of gold, diamonds, pearls, silver, gems and jewellery which would otherwise been burnt in the palace fire. Little was their luck, and the fire reached the secret passage, and all the people carrying the fortune of Peshwas were burnt alive and the secret passage couldn’t be traced later. This means that the wealth of Peshwas of around 1,20,000 crore rupees is still buried in the secret tunnel to Parvati!
