Shaniwar Wada, was once the royal residence of the Peshwas. In 1828 a great fire started inside the palace complex tarnished most of the fort, leaving only the heavy granite ramparts, teak gateways and some building ruins. The view looks towards the entrance gatehouse and outer walls of the palace, with a vegetable market on the open space in the foreground.
