A unique exhibition, which brings alive around 250 forts captured by King Shivaji from the Mughals in the 16th century, has been thrown open in Pune to commemorate the coronation day of the Maratha warrior.
The exhibition titled Shivdurgdarshan features a staggering 40,000 photographs of the historical forts taken from multiple angles, depicting the structures and the surrounding landscape.
The organisers Raja Shivaji.Com said the `Guinness Book of World Records' will be taking note of the event under the theme `Forts of King Shivaji' as it has surpassed all earlier photo exhibitions in respect of the pictures put on display.
A replica of Chhatrapati Shivaji's Sinhasan (throne) too has been put on display at the exhibition, inaugurated by historian Babasaheb Purandare, known for research and writings on the warrior who took on the Mughal rulers to establish `Swaraj', excelling in guerrilla warfare.
