Wada वाडा is a typical Maratha architecture. Big and small, ornate and humble were seen across Maharashtra. This is the wada of Nana Phadnis at #Menavli about 3km on outskirts of #Wai. The wada is recently restored and worth a visit. #heritage
Most large wada had dindi darwaja (दिंडी दरवाजा) large entry gate with a smaller one cut in it for daily use, chowk (चौक) - open to sky quadrangles with buildings on all sides, small stair cases built in the walls
The first chowk in this wada has a smaller murti of Wai Mahaganpati. The diwankhana दिवाण खाना or the hall for audience is typical Maratha with cypress pillars सुरूचे खांब and ornate wooden ceiling.

The town of #Wai in #Satara district of Maharashtra located on the banks of the Krishna river has culturally and historically been an important center. It was here that Afzal Khan camped when he attempted to subdue the Maratha power under Chhatrapati Shivaji.
#Wai has seven ghats or stepped embankments on the Krishna River. Krishnabai or Krishnamai as the river is reveretially and affectionately called here is celebrated with an annual celebration or उत्सव in her name.
The Ganpati Ghat has the Mahaganpati Temple also called the Dholya Ganpati ढोल्या गणपती since the murti is very big. It was built by Shrimant Ganpatrao Bhikaji Raste in 1762.
