Saras Baug is an important landmark in Pune (State: Maharashtra). In the 18th century Shrimant Nanasaheb Peshwa started the development and beautification of this area which is about 25000 Sq.ft. To start with this region was once occupied by a lake. But as the time passed the lake dried up and was later developed into a garden named as 'Sara Baug'.
Here, in the year 1750 under the direction of the Sawai Madhavrao Peshwa and Mahadji Shinde a temple for Lord Ganesh was constructed. It got completed in 1784.
This temple is painted in red color externally and one can reach the temple by climbing a series of steps.
Since then several renovations were done to the temple and the area surrounding area so far.
