The Shaniwar Wada has beautiful and well maintained gardens where can spend hours sitting and enjoying the beauty. It hosts a light and sound show in Marathi and Hindi narrating stories from the life of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. It is projected over a water fountain.
There are a few stories surrounding the place and people have claimed the fort to be haunted in the past, which has only made the place more intriguing to the curious tourists. The fort had, in fact, witnessed the brutal murder of the fifth Peshwas ruler, Narayanrao, which have led people to believe that he still visits the palace on full moon nights screaming for help.
For anyone interested in some thrill, or to spend an interesting time or simply intrigued by the history of the Maratha Empire, the Shaniwar Wada is the perfect destination.
