The city of Pune is the 8th largest city in India and the second largest in the Indian state of Maharashtra. It is the capital of the district of Pune and is situated where the Mula and Mutha rivers converge. The city has been known to exist since 937 AD. It was founded by Shivaji Raje, the founder of the Marathi Empire. In the early 16th century, Pune was an important political centre as the headquarters of the Prime Minister of the Chhatrapati of Satara. After being annexed by the British in 1817, it became the capital of the Bombay presidency until the independence of India in 1947.
 
The city is today a major educational centre with over 100 colleges and nine fully accredited universities. Furthermore, it has a well established and thriving manufacturing sector.
