Vishrambaug Wada is a three-storeyed mansion built by Peshwa Bajirao II. It has captivating Maratha-style stone architecture symbolizing the historical richness of the era.
The building stands tall and wide amidst the hustle bustle of the city. And the contrasting tones of brown and white on earthy red attract every passer-by. It also has a magnificent entrance, with teak-wood finishes and carved pillars.
The fineness of the building is worth admiring. Today, it houses different Government offices.
And only a part of Vishrambaug Wada is open to the public. But whatever it is, it gives you a glimpse into the grandeur of Bajirao era. As you enter, you have a teak gallery on both sides, stone floor, and decorated ceilings.
The first floor has the huge darbar hall with exquisite teakwood carvings on pillars and grand chandeliers. And the balcony is said to be the performance stage for musicians.
The complex also has a small Maratha museum and a handicraft shop.
