Shinde Chhatri Pune

Shinde Chhatri is a memorial building dedicated to Mahadji Shinde. He was the commander-in-chief of the Maratha army, from 1760 to 1780.

Mahadji Shinde played a significant role in resurrecting Maratha power, and he got many victories, regaining the lost glory of the empire. And Shinde Chhatri, his cremation ground, is a part of the city’s heritage.

The place is a little tourist complex surrounded by a high wall, with a tall entrance gate. A huge stone sculpture of Mahadji Shinde welcomes you at the entrance.

Shinde Chhatri is built with yellow sandstone, in Anglo-Rajasthani architectural style. It has fascinating elaborate walls and carved ornate pillars. And the interior is covered with beautiful works in orange and green. A spiral staircase and stained-glass windows are also part of the vibrant architecture.

It also has a Shiva Temple, apart from the memorial. The temple sanctum has idols of different gods carved out of yellowstone. And its walls are painted with stories from Hindu mythologies.
