Pune Travel Guide

Queen of the Deccan, Pune city is amongst the largest metro cities of India and stands at the confluence of the Mula and Mutha rivers. Pune has come to be recognized as the cultural capital of Maharashtra, and has transitioned from being an agricultural city to one of the fastest growing cities in the state. After Mumbai, Pune has gained importance for academics, culture and the industrial power horse of the western state of Maharashtra. It has one of India's oldest universities and its numerous colleges attract Indian and international students, the reason why it has also acquired the name “Oxford of the East”. But what is most appealing about Pune is its weather, the well - laid avenues and the relaxed ambience.

Interestingly Pune has the largest number of two-wheelers in the world.

Did you know that the name 'Pune'has been derived from the Sanskrit word 'Puya Nagari'meaning 'City of Virtue.'

Pune is also known for the highest number of public sectors and government organisation in India.
