HI GUYS WELCOME TO MY ANOTHER BLOG.
I know it’s been long time I didn’t posted my blog was busy with keeping up the things right and trying to make a good plan so that to visit the new places and also to understand what’s going on around.
This is the journey I had alone and happen to make new friends.It all happen when there was no job and I was searching for it so I decided to go somewhere as I was totally frustrated with no opening and nothing was going on right so one of my parents friend told me that there is job opening in Pune. As I was going to travel alone so I decided to explore the city as well as search for new opportunities to explore the part of Maharashtra so the journey was not much long as I reside in Mumbai it’s hardly 3 to 4 hours journey with train and 5 to 6 hours with car or bus. So I booked a hotel near Pune city and my journey continue. Being in such a part of the wonderful city with old tradition I thought to visit some places and explore it well.
So as of I remember it was Friday and as I told you was frustrated and wanted some alone time so that I could able to deal with some my own (you know the Me Time). So early morning I decided to get to the bus and as the distance was not that long decided to take a book so that I could read and the time will pass by. At 5.00 Am I board the bus and my journey to Pune started
The above is the Map of Mumbai to Pune.
This is the Mumbai Pune Express Way.
The journey started with total fun reached Pune before reaching to Pune there was many stops but the specific I remember was Lonavala. The trip to this place will let you know in detail after this blog.
And I entered the City of Pune. This is the detail I got from the Internet.
Pune is a sprawling city in the western Indian state of Maharashtra. It was once the base of the Peshwas (prime ministers) of the Maratha Empire, which lasted from 1674 to 1818. It’s known for the grand Aga Khan Palace, built in 1892 and now a memorial to Mahatma Gandhi, whose ashes are preserved in the garden. The 8th-century Pataleshwar Cave Temple is dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva.

I check into my Hotel and the best part of it was that as it was located at the main city and bus stop it was easy to travel all the places that I made the list.
So the total days I was at that place was about the whole week as I started my Journey on Saturday Morning I was going back home by the same day on next Saturday. All I had was just a week time to travel and to explore. Thinking of that made me excited but at the same time it was quit difficult as I was travelling alone for the first time what if I get bored so I made some backup plan as well to call my friend on Friday night and we will come back home on Sunday staying there for one more day. But that was my plan ‘B’.
Later that day I decided why to waste time sitting inside the hotel as the temperature was quit cold and the temperature drop to about 10 to 9 Degree Celsius. As I was alone the was no pressure to hotel early or late I just grabbed my camera and went to see the Famous Ganesha Mandir.
DAGADUSHETH HALWAI GANAPATI TEMPLE
Shreemant Dagdusheth Halwai Ganapati Temple in Pune is dedicated to the Hindu God Ganesh. The temple is popular in Maharashtra and is visited by thousands of pilgrims every year. Devotees of the temple include celebrities and Chief Ministers of Maharashtra who visit during the annual ten-day Ganeshotsav festival.
This place was Huge and was full of Positive vibes.
So it happen to have a very positive impact on me and that lead me to start visiting places on my own. Later that night I went to one of the nicest Restaurant.
Next day was Sunday so I decided to go to nearby places and explore the Royal side and Royal Heritage of Pune.
Shaniwarwada is a historical fortification in the city of Pune in Maharashtra, India. Built in 1732, it was the seat of the Peshwas of the Maratha Empire until 1818, when the Peshwas lost control to the British East India Company after the Third Anglo-Maratha War.
It was nice experience to visit this place and also to know the old heritage of this place in Pune.
The next place I visited was the palace.
AGA KHAN PALACE
The Aga Khan Palace was built by Sultan Muhammed Shah Aga Khan III in Pune, India. Built in 1892, it is one of important landmarks in Indian history. The palace was an act of charity by the Sultan who wanted to help the poor in the neighbouring areas of Pune, who were drastically hit by famine.
RAJA DINKAR KELKAR MUSEUM
The Raja Dinkar Kelkar Museum is in Pune, Maharashtra, India. It contains the collection of Dr. Dinkar G. Kelkar, dedicated to the memory of his only son, Raja. The three-storey building houses various sculptures dating back to the 14th century.
Travelling so many place does make you feel excited but good food also make you feel joyful.
On the next day I went to see some of the company and the business park in Pune. Frankly it was nice and huge thought of getting job to those place. On the same day I went to see my relatives as being living in Mumbai everyone called to meet, So i meet my brothers and sister. I asked them some more place to visit they did told me but it was out of my itinerary then to guys I managed to see some.
Next day I woke up early and went to see the Forts. As it was trek I meet new friends enjoyed the trek and it was going well.
Sinhagad is a hill fortress located at around 36 km southwest of the city of Pune, India. Some of the information available at this fort suggests that the fort could have been built 2000 years ago. The caves and the carvings in the Kaundinyeshwar temple stand as proofs for the same.
Next was Lal Mahal

After all the forts and various place the next destination was nice place to chill and meet new people.
