Located in Pune
, Raste Wada is one of the largest remaining wadas, which stands
surrounded by a jungle of multi storeyed buildings. Anandrao Bhikaji Raste
built the massive core of the Wada during the reign of Madhavrao Peshwa,
which still remains. The Wada cost Rs.9 lakh to build and had stable to
house Raste's cavalry retinue, the family being the hereditary heads of
the Peshwa's cavalry.
At present these cloisters have been either ravaged by time or late out to tenants. The 'Diwankhana', once a separate building, now houses a municipal school. 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.
