Shaniwar Wada is a palace fort situated near the Mula-Mutha River in Kasba Peth, Pune, Maharashtra. It was the royal residence and ruling office of the Peshwas in 18th and 19th Century. The structure was constructed by Peshwa Baji Rao I, the Prime minister to the fourth Maratha Chhatrapati Shahu. Shaniwar Wada is a confluence of Maratha craftsmanship and Mughal architecture. The Palace was largely destroyed in a big fire in 1828; only the heavy granite ramparts, strong teak gateways and deep foundations and ruins of the building within the fort survived.
