Pune Forts:
Pune, the land of forts and the sea forts stand in testimony of the glory of Raja Shivaji till date. Historically speaking Pune was handed over to the Peshwa family, whose Maratha power rose to be a major political force. In 1818, Pune was taken over by the East India Company. Though the capital city of Maharashtra, Mumbai is attracts larger number of tourists, Pune is a popular tourist destination being the cultural capital of Maharashtra.
