Avirat posted on 13 November

Ten-Second Takeaway

Known for its crowded lanes and for having been established by a fearsome general of the Peshwa armies, Peshwa Sadashivrao, Sadashiv Peth brims with authentic Puneri culture, food and history.

Shop At Legendary Stores

When at Sadashiv Peth, head to Kumthekar Road to shop some pretty traditional wear at Tathastu Emporium which has a huge variety of sarees, dresses, one-piece dresses, nightwear and formals for woman and kurtas, dhotis, blazers and more for men. And guess what guys, we bought some classy raw silk sarees {for mummy} for INR 700 each and 3 kurtas for INR 800 each! If not here, go to Vama, which is Pune’s oldest and favourite homegrown brand for sarees, with their range starting at INR 500.

Take A Stroll At Peshwas' Private Garden

Saras Baugh is a landmark for Pune. Once a private garden of the Peshwas, Saras Baugh is a must for small picnics with friends or family or bae because of it’s lush greenery and also their famous “Talyatla Ganpati”, which has over 100 Ganpati idols of different sizes, shapes and materials.

    The Legendary Mastani

    If there is one thing that’s common between Bajirao and Punekars is their love for Mastani! Of course, one for a person one for a thick milkshake available in various flavours of pistachio, kesar, mango and others available at the famous Sujata Mastani. This glass-full of yummy would cost INR 70 upwards.
