Artist's Description

Presenting classical delight of Indian architecture, photographed recently in my city. This artistic and delicate stonework, enlightened in the morning sunlight is captured from a temple in the memories of Maratha warier – Mahadji Shinde

One of the greatest architectural beauties of the Pune city is the Shindyanchi Chhatri, situated in Wanowrie. It is a memorial dedicated to the great soldier, Mahadji Shinde. For twenty years, between 1760 and 1780, he served as the commander-in-chief of the Maratha army under the Peshwas.

The entire complex of the memorial also consists of a temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, which was built by Mahadji himself, in the year 1794. He left for the holy abode the same year and in 1965, Madhavrao Sindhia got the entire complex built, along with the samadhi (memorial).

Better enjoyed in enlarged view. Reposted after noise reduction ( 31.12.2008 )
