Location : Pune, Maharashtra
Built By: Anandrao Bhikaji Raste
Building Cost: Rs.9 Lakh
Significance: One Of The Largest Wadas

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.
