Raste Wada

Raste Wada is located in Pune. Raste Wada is regarded to be one of the largest wadas, which stands surrounded by a jungle of multi storeyed buildings. During the reign of Madhavrao Peshwa, Anandrao Bhikaji Raste built the massive core of the Wada. In building the Wada, Rs.9 lakh had been spent. There is also a stable to house Raste's cavalry retinue.

At present these cloisters have been either ravaged by time or late out to tenants. The 'Diwankhana' has a municipal school now. It was once a separate building. Sealed-up fountains, and covered chandeliers stand as steeled voices from the past.

Pune is well connected by air, rail and road with the important places within and beyond the state. For local transportation taxis, city buses and auto rickshaws are available.
