Join The Western Routes for a walk to explore the Tambat Ali and get a closer look at the craftsmen and their craft.

The Tambat community of Pune goes back more than 300 years when some of the residents of the coppersmith's (tambat) lane (ali) moved here during the reign of the Peshwas. They set up small factory-cum-homes in Kasba Peth which is now known as the Tambat Ali. The ever-rising copper prices and a drop in the use of copper objects are the reasons for the decline in the number of families involved in this skilled work. Despite these challenges and struggles, the tambats continue to preserve their craft with pride and honour.

The Western Routes was founded in 2011. It started as a concept that found its roots in the love for the state of Maharashtra and its native culture. Since 2015, we have ventured into curating itineraries pan-India which are themed around history, culture, wildlife, people & food.
