Mangalwar Peth is an old neighbourhood or ward in the city of Pune. It was settled in 1662 when Mughal Subahdar Shaista Khan came to Pune to defeat Shivaji. At the time this area was known as Astapura. This area was famous for various businesses. However, Mangalwar Peth was destroyed during the Panshet dam's flood in 1961. Kamala Nehru Hospital is also located in this Peth. Today the business of transportation is carried out in this area.
