Good place to visit but to old structure. However people who should maintain that not maintained the fort. People have littered the fort badly. You can carry your own camera or take picture with mobile also. descent place to visit for 1.5-2hrs.

The fort because of its toughness is still intact. However the local people have not maintained the fort. People have littered the fort badly. This definitely can be maintained much better with more tress growing in the vicinity.

Shaniwar wada was the palace of Bajirao Peshwa. The place is not that well mantained but the door and some other things are well preserved. It gives a glimpse of glorious history of Maratha empire. Q must see place in Pune.

You will need about an hour, is not a big place and is open till 6. If you visiting Shaniwar Wada, should visit Laxmi Road, Tulsi bagh for shopping
