Pune is also a famous educational hub and it has loads of institutes which are filled up by various local students and those who migrate from the rest of the country.

Pune is also famous amongst various tourists as many hills are to be found in and around the city. These hills beautify the city and these become an important reason why tourists pour in. Pune is located in the proximity of Mumbai (around 160 km from Mumbai) and hence this becomes another important reason why tourists regularly visit Pune.
