History of Pune

The history of the Pune is closely related to the rise of the Maratha of the 17th and 18th centuries. In the 18th century, Pune was the major political hub of the Indian subcontinent, the seat of the Peshwas who were the principal ministers of the Maratha Empire. However in 1818 after the fall of Peshwa rule, the new British rulers made the city one of their major military bases.

Before British takeover, the city was confined to the East bank of the Mutha river. Since then the city has grown on both sides of the river.In the 19th and 20th century, Pune was also considered by the British as the centre of political unrest against their rule.

Pune is 560 m above the sea level on the western margin of the Deccan Plateau. It is a beautiful hill city, with its highest hill, Vetal Hill rising to 800 m (2,600 ft) above sea level. Sinhagad Fort is another major attraction hub for tourists, and the fort is located at an altitude of 1,300 metres (4,300 feet).
