A beautiful morning on Parvati Hill

Posted on Posted in Photo Stories

Parvati Hill is one of the main attractions of Pune City and takes us back in the Peshwa era. It is a steep climb of approximately 100 steps but you get a panoramic view of Pune City from the top and also from a terrace. There are many beautiful temples on top built during the rule of the Peshwa dynasty. Let me take you to this place through the medium of Photo Stories.
