Initially, Shaniwarwada was the seven-story headquarters of the Maratha Empire’s Peshwas. It was intended to be constructed entirely of stone, but after the base floor or the first floor had been completed, the citizens of Satara (the national capital) protested to the Shahu(King) that a stone temple could only be approved and built by the Shahu(King) himself and not the Peshwas. Following this, an official letter to the Peshwas was written specifying that the remaining house needed to be built of brick and not concrete. Also now, if you closely tour to see the walls, they’re partly made of stone to partly of bricks. The Wada was done and, 90 years on, after being struck by the British Artillery, all the top six floors collapsed leaving only the stone foundation, That was in the British artillery immune.

I have detested not seeing a good picture for some time. Yet then I remembered the trees are part and parcel of the place’s ambiance. The structure is beautiful in light gray with the red slanting roof-making it looks vibrant in a very subtle way. Today, I’m not sure whether it was always like that or was designed to look like it has become a national monument in Mahatma Gandhi’s memory.
