Aundh State was a Maratha princely state in the British Raj, in the Deccan States Agency division of the Bombay Presidency.[1][2]

The Principality of Aundh covered an area of 1298 square kilometers with the population of 88,762 in 1941.[3]

The capital of the state was Aundh.[3]

History[edit]

Aundh State was founded by Parshuram Trimbak Pant Pratinidhi, who was a general, administrator and later Pratinidhi of the Maratha Empire during the reign of Chhatrapati Sambhaji and Chhatrapati Rajaram.[4] He played a crucial role in re-capturing Panhala Fort, Ajinkyatara (at Satara), Bhupalgad forts from Mughals during period of 1700-1705.[5]

The last ruler of the Aundh was Raja Shrimant Bhawanrao Shriniwasrao Pant Pratinidhi ("Bala Sahib"). The state joined the Union of India on 8 March 1948.[6][7]
