Shaniwarwada, the citadel of the peshwas an important chapter in the history of the Marathas, continues to stand tall in the face of heavy odds. A bonanza of a Light and sound show at a cost of Rs 1.25 crore is all set to make this historical monument glow dazzlingly. The shabby and dusty ground, bang in front of the Wada, which had politicians and other celebrities waxing eloquent during public rallies, is being spruced up with a landscaped garden and permanent stage for speakers.

Its old world charm has slowly become a thing of the past, largely due to the beastly skyline that surround it: mutli-storeyed cemented structures that have ugly facades.
