Pune Bazaar Walk

As part of the Pune Heritage festival which happened recently, i participated in the Pune Bazaar walk. There were many other such interesting walks, but they were spread over the week including weekdays which made it difficult to attend. The bazaar walk started at the Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Mandai and took us through the narrows streets of the neighbourhood introducing us to various small, but historically old and famous shops/bazaars. Around 10 people turned up for the walk and i was the only guy in the group! Maybe the word “Bazaar” appealed more to women!
I have tried to pinpoint few of the places in the map here. We went in all directions inside narrow streets, so there is no way i can recollect the exact route. Should have enabled mytracks before i started off!
