Nana Wada

The 17th-century Nana Wada stands as an ode to Nana Phadanvis, one of the bravest Peshwa fighters. This is one of the oldest historical places in Pune designed in unique architecture. The timber ceilings are made in traditional wadi-style, there are huge golden-yellow arches, carvings on the walls, and Cyprus tree-like pillars. You will see a Diwan Khana on the first floor, which also has some manuscripts in the Modi script prepared by Nana himself. An interesting feature here is the emergency exit dating back to the time of its construction. Nana Wada is now housing a school.
