The 'Oxford of India'.
Which place is called the 'Oxford of India' ?
According to the my knowledge,the Pune is derived from 'Punya' or a holy place,as the city stands on the sacred a confluence of two rivers.
Picturesque Pune,the 'Queen of the Deccan' nestles in the scenic Sahayadri ranges,on the edge of the Deccan plains.
In 1818,the British captured the city after the battle of Koregaon.
Pune is also known as 'Oxford of India'for its renowned educational and research institutions.
This 'Cultural Capital of maharashtra' was once the glorious capital of the Maratha empire and the centre of the Maratha awakening.
Pune became the base of Chhatrapati Shivaji,the great Maratha emperor,whose exploits against tthe Bijapur army and Mughal king Aurangzeb are legendary.
