Historical Pune is located in the western Indian state of Maharashtra. Pune is the 7th largest city in India, it is the second largest city in the state of Maharashtra. It is situated at the eastern edge of the Western ghats on the Deccan plateau.
Pune's Fame began when king of Maratha Empire 'Chhatrapati Shivaji' came to stay here with his great mother Jijabai in 1635-36. They lived in Lal Mahal. Kasba Ganpati Mandir was built by Jijabai. In the early 18th century, prime minister of Chhatrapati Shahu, Peshwe Baji Rao wanted to make Pune his home. He built his palace on a ground near the Mutha river which is now known as Shaniwar Peth. The palace built in Shaniwar Peth is known as Shaniwar Wada.
In 1817 the Peshwas weredefeated and the British forces took over the town. The British built a large cantonment to the east of the city. The city passed into British rule after the defeat of Marathas in the Battle of Ashti in 1818. Army bases established by the British on the outskirts of the city were later converted into cantonments of Pune and Khadki. The Pune Municipality was established in 1858. A number of esteemed educational institutes also came up here in the latter half of the 19th century.

Pune's reputation as an educational and research node grew after independence with the establishment of University of Pune, National Defence Academy (NDA), National Chemical Laboratory, College of Engineering, Pune, SP College, Fergussan College.
