Dagdi Wada, or more commonly, Nagarkar Wada, named after the family that built it, is both majestic and hidden and surrounded by almost all people
Consumer electronics market in Tapkir Galli.
It is a local landmark.
In addition to the large dindi darwaja, which marks its entrance, Jayshree Kulkarni and Suman Baral are almost entirely in a different world, chatting in the warm afternoon sun and sitting on the steps leading to the apartment on the first floor.
The entrance and the courtyard everywhere were spotless and, despite the bustling market outside, it was almost surprisingly quiet.
There are even signs of warning tourists to keep them clean.
Outside one of the apartments, papads has been dried and reinforced in the sun.
All maintenance is done by the residents themselves because of the residents and the private
The buildings owned are usually not within the scope of Pune Municipal companies (PMC)
Or archaeological investigations in India (ASI).

The story tells the story of Hotan, the social reformist Raghunath who was founded in 1890.
These families include businessmen, teachers, professionals and even freedom fighters whose nameplates still decorate the doors of his former land --Floor apartments.
Today, there are only four families left, including the kurkanis family and the Balar family.
This happened during a newly discovered period of wealth, a larger family, and the second floor of wada was burned down due to the 2010 fire.
The name Dagdi clearly shows what wada's base material is and is very different from other materials nearby.
But on top of that, the building is also different from any other building in terms of wadas in the old town.
The entrance is a classic Gothic style unique to the Victorian era.
It has the look and feel of any building in the southern Fort area of Mumbai.
But for the city, just above the door, Lord Ganesh was neatly carved in the middle of an arch decorated with flowers and wave structures.
On the outer surface of the first floor, more floral patterns are high above.
They are located on boards embedded in the surface of the stone, and also on wooden ledge at the bottom of the window board.
The basic structure is like any other wada, there are courtyards and so on.
However, the material used to build it is stone, which extends all the way to the second floor.
In addition, the entrance and engraving on the walls and windows is the same as the Venetian Gothic architecture.
Even like Gothic architecture, the bottom of the building is quite high.

These rings are actually used to show pandas at weddings held here or at weddings hosted by Ganeshotsav.
Only a few families stay here, Kulkulkarni added, but we still do our best to celebrate Ganeshotsav.
The family has been collectively removed from the building and is now managed by a trustee executed by a city --
It is headquartered in public sector banks.
The trustee has a small office at the entrance of the wada partition a partition wall, along with a faded sign that says the trustee and its premises.
The office is located on a very high base, opposite the typical wooden staircase leading to the upper level.
The stairwell itself is enough to prove that the times have evolved into a major electrical switch and part of the meter of the building, and if there are wires, a large number of wires will be generated.
Most of these meters are inactive, which also shows the near
Give up wada.
Despite the scarcity of the population, the four existing families still try to maintain a certain look of the community, which wada lifestyle tends to foster.
We celebrate all the festivals together;
Our children go to the same school and tutoring classes.
One of their teachers also lives in the building.
