Pune’s history can be traced back to the early human settlements that sprawled along the riverbank of Mula-Mutha. From there, the city spread, upgrading and changing constantly. In this wave of change, few archaeological remains of ancient human life have been preserved. Pataleshvara cave, located in the once famously known Bhamburda region, is one such prehistoric monument. The tales of this treasure are drops in the ocean of the historical trajectory of Pune city.
Pune as we know it today and the city as of 1,200 years ago are quite different. The huge stone pillars, unfinished surfaces and robust architectural details reveal the stories of their contemporary period. Join us to walk around and talk about this lesser-known Pataleshvara cave while exploring the nuances of the area surrounding it.
