Mahadji Shinde Chhatri


Mahadji Shinde Chhatri alias Shindyanchi Chhatri located in Wanwadi, about 7kms from Pune railway station is one of the landmarks of Pune. This memorial is dedicated to the great soldier Mahadji Shinde, the Commander in chief of the Maratha Army, between 1760 to 1780 (during the rule of the Peshwas). Built in 1965 in the Rajasthani style of architecture by Madhav Rao Sindhya, it becomes one of the famous architectural memorial of Pune . Spread over an area of 4 acres of land this three storey 50 ft tall monument houses a Shiva temple, which was built by Mahadji Shinde in 1794 and the Samadi of Shrimant Mahadji Shinde, who passed away in the same year. One can enter the monument through the magnificent iron gates. The halls with marble flooring and stone pillars houses colored glass panes and antique lamps. The exterior walls are carved with beautiful floral designs and stained glass windows with mini balcony. One can found a silver portrait of the warrior, dressed up in a flame coloured turban and a richly designed shawl. The Puja vessels used by him to worship the family deity are kept at the foot of his picture and are still being used for daily rituals.The most notable fact about the monument is that it still retains its architectural beauty and seems unaffected by the ravages of time. At present it is managed by Sindhiya Devasthan, a trust of Gwalior.Shindyanchi Chhatri opens from 6.00am to 9.00pm. Entry Fee : Rs 2
