In Pune, reminders of a centuries-old heyday as a seat of power for Maratha rulers abound, but you might miss them amid today’s booming design, culinary and education sectors.

In the new city, creativity thrives. The best in Indian design is cheered at the annual Pune Design Festival. Year-round, shopkeepers hawk art and bright, copper-forged pottery. And a dozen different cuisines — from sushi to German-inspired beer gardens to whimsical, London-themed cafés — beckon from the Baner-Balewadi area, luring students from the city’s 100+ education institutions.

Celebrate Pune and its creative reinvention in our next issue.
