The stupa in the chaityagriha has a railing decoration of the base and a wooden shaft of the umbrella of the top. This prayer hall is known for its perfection in proportions, with the various sections precisely designed and executed. Such is the mathematical precision that every component has been worked out with relation to the other, ensuring a cohesive composition of all the elements and the whole. The planning has also been associated with long standing tradition along with perfection in the sculptural work. The vihara is apsidal with a barrel vaulted roof and is unique in Western India of this typology. Some of the caves showed traces of paintings.
TOPOGRAPHICAL FEATURES: Carved on the same hill range as the Bhaja caves, the rock-cut excavations of Bedsa lie 35Kms North-West of Pune, overlooking the broad valley of the river Pavna about 661m above sea level.

Bhaja Caves
DISTRICT Pune TEHSIL / SUB-DIVISION: Maval
LOCALITY Bhaja (Lat. 180 44’, Long. 730 29’)
NOTIFICATION NO.: 2704-A, dated 26.05.1909
APPROACH: Airport- Pune, Railway Station- Malavali, Bus station- Maval
BRIEF DESCRIPTION: The Buddhist excavations at Bhaja are a small series of very early Hinayana caves datable to the 2nd century B. C. to the 1st century A. D. and consist of 29 excavations. Perhaps one of the oldest Buddhist religious centers in the Deccan, it is hence significant to the development of cave architecture. The principal excavation at Bhaja is the chaitya, which resembles its timber precedent in design – with ribbed timber fitted ceiling, plain octagonal shafts with a slight inward rake and much timber attachment or mortises left in the rock to house timber members in the front and within. The exterior of this prayer hall seems to have been fitted with a huge timber attachment that has since worn away to be replaced by a gaping hole. Such timber overlay is still evident on the inside that has timber ribs spanning the entire width of the roof. The stupa is a plain conception in two simple parts consisting of a cylindrical base supporting a tall domical body with a railing finial. There are 12 inscriptions in different caves. The other interesting feature in this group of caves is the cluster of stupas.
TOPOGRAPHICAL FEATURES: One of the key features of the Bhaja caves is the setting of the cave site. Set at the midlevel of the imposing hill range, the beautiful colour of the rock is enriched in the rays of the setting sun. It is about 60Kms north-west of Pune on the Pune-Bombay highway.

NOTIFICATION NO.: BM - 5038, dated 17.06.1919
APPROACH: Airport- Pune, Railway Station- Pune, Bus station- Pune
BRIEF DESCRIPTION: The Shaniwarwada was probably the finest modern palace of its time in Deccan and its foundation stone was laid by Peshwa Bajirao on Saturday, January 10, 1730. The only surviving remnants are the massive rampart with its gateways and bastions and within the enclosure of that rampart the remains, in ruins, of several structures and garden. Two years were spent in the construction of the building and the house warming ceremony was performed on Saturday, the 22nd January 1732. It is perhaps because of these two important initial events having fallen on a Saturday that the palace came to be known as the Shaniwarwada. The palatial enclosure was the chief residence of the Peshwas until 1818 and was destroyed by a series of fire hazards, first in 1791, second in 1794 and finally in 1827 AD.
