Charm of Pune university campus

Morning walk and cycle ride

Morning walk and cycle ride in the university campus has always been a pleasure. The sprawling campus of Pune university (now Savitribai Phule Pune university) has its own charm. The best thing is that the charm is different for each season. At no point of time during the year, this campus discourages you for a morning walk or a cycle ride.

Spread over more than 400 acres, University of Pune was established in 1949. In 2014, it was renamed to Savitribai Phule Pune University.

Garden with the walking path

It has taken time but the garden and the walking path have vastly improved. The garden is a real treat.

Cycle ride

The best thing about cycling in the university campus is that each ride has a different route. Over the years, I have realised that for almost each cycle ride, I end up following a different route. The cycling route gets decided on the spur of the moment once you are inside the campus. The only thing missing is good tea places where one could stop by for chai and refreshments.

While I saw this battle tank in the university campus so many times, this sight had to be captured. The beauty of this visual is that it can be interpreted in so many ways. Truly, a photographer’s delight !

More pictures to come

I will go on adding pictures of all the interesting visuals that I will come across during the walks and cycle rides in this beautiful and inviting campus.
