Overall Guide:  A must see place in PUNE, The Darshan Museum, located in Central Pune in the first floor of Sadhu Vaswani Mission Building, is built on a space of 10,000 sq. feet. This biographical museum chronicles the various events from the life of Sadhu T.L. Vaswani, the noted Sindhi Saint and scholar.Darshan offers an interactive, entertaining, and educative experience to its visitors through a series of immersive spatial experiences rich in audio, video and multimedia. This light-and-sound-show-based museum has been made using a vast palette of technologies, such as real-life mannequins, graphic panels, holographic ... More screens, Pepper’s ghost, interactive audio visual material, films, etc. Darshan is facilitated by ushers who guide the visitors through the 8 zones. The extent of detailing in each zone is commendable, adeptly recreating the highlights of the life of Sadhu Vaswani. This interactive museum runs 100-minute shows every half an hour. In the narrative, the visitors can choose from two different languages, i.e., Hindi and English.

Overall Guide: Pune is urban yet has a beautiful countryside to it. Kondhwa is the place to be. Vimannagar, Kalyani nagar and koregaon are just like Mumbai city but getting very crowded and commercial. There are a lot of IT companies springing up in Pune. The weather as compared to Mumbai is far better. There is less polllution and the army cantonments and command areas make it a very safe and liveable place because of which the crime rate is also very low. Many mubaikars are migrating to Pune to find some calm and solace. In a few years from now Pune is going to be the "next big thing" ... cheers

Overall Guide: It's a nice place to be. I am here to look for a Job in IT sector. I found the city quite interesting. The people out here are quite helpful. Although a person should be able to understand Marathi at least to survive in a city like this.
