Located in Maharashtra, Pune is the state's second largest city and cultural capital. Not only is it a hub for museums, temples, beaches, and scenic overlooks, but it also has a thriving nightlife and general atmosphere due to the student population.
One of Pune's best known landmarks is perhaps the Aga Khan Palace, a monument dedicated in memorial to Mahatma Gandhi and his wife Kasturba. The palace is a beautiful piece of architecture complete with Italian arches, salons, suites, and spacious green lawns.

Pune is also home to a number of impressive museums. Raja Dinkar Kelkar Museum is one such place, housed in a Rajasthani-style building, exhibiting a collection of Indian arts and crafts. Some highlights include carved palace and temple doors, 2,000 year old pottery, traditional Indian lamps, and 17th century paintings. The Darshan Museum is another impressive example, exhibiting a light and sound show of 3D holographic technology, based on the life of the saint, Sadhu Vaswani.

The Dagadusheth Halwai Ganapati Temple is another prime attraction, a pilgrimage site dedicated to the Hindu God, Ganesh. The temple consists of marble interiors and a 7.5-ft Ganesh idol crafted in gold. It is one of the most highly revered places of worship in India.

Other sights include the Parvati Hill temples, Pune University, ISKCON temple, an 8th century rock-cut temple at the Pataleshwar Caves, Bund Garden, and the Bhimashankar Wildlife Sanctuary.
Though Pune is a small city, it has a number of thriving districts and neighborhoods worth exploring. Some of these include:

Deccan is the cultural district, housing a number of theaters, art galleries, and cinema halls.

Meals are prepared in a variety of ways from curry sauces based in coconut milk to red gravies or white gravies, all usually served with rice. Pickles and condiments often accompany main dishes. Chutneys, for example, are especially popular with preserves which include raw mango chutney, mint, tamarind chutney, cilantro, panchamrit, and mirachicha thecha, as well as dry varieties based on oil seeds such as flax seed, peanut, sesame, coconut, and karale.
