Vishrambaug Wada from the inside. 

This wada was built in 1807 as the luxurious residence of PeshwaBajirao II. Miniature models of renowned heritage sites of Pune have been preserved inside the Vishrambaug Wada. The entrance and the balcony carved with wood work makes it one of the most captivating sites of Pune.

The heritage walk organized by Janwani ends with a fascinating cultural performance along with Marathi refreshments and Pune Kasba, the artisan’s corner. It is a way to generate employment for artists working hard to preserve the rich culture. The evening comes to an end with three performances; Lavani (traditional song and a dance combination portrayed on the themes of love, romance and socio-political situations), Bharud (folk dramas based on the ideas of Vedantic philosophy) and Powada (music and verse form praising historical heroes).
