Tulapur is about 40 Kilometres north east of Pune. It is situated at the confluence of the Bhima River and the Indrayani River and was originally known as 'Nagargaon' and is associated with the last moments of Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj, Son of Chhatrapati Shivaji. Captured at Sangameshwar, close to Tulapur, Chhatrapati Sambhaji was executed at Tulapur by Aurangzeb due to his fight and bravery against the latter. He was hacked, and the pieces thrown into the river Bhima. However, a community that lived on the banks of the river retrieved the pieces of his body, and sewed them together. This community is to this day known as "Shewale" (literally "those that sewed"). In defiance of the Mughal Emperor's orders, his mortal remains were then cremated by the brave villagers of Vadhu, a village not far from Tulapur.

Along with Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj, his poet-friend Kavi Kalash was killed by Aurangzeb at the same place. 

The Sangameshwar temple built on the banks of the confluence is worth a visit. The Samadhi at Vadhu was unattended to until recently. It is now being renovated. Kavi Kalash's samadhi too is present at Vadhu.

Tulapur is about 40 Kilometres north east of Pune. It is situated at the confluence of the Bhima River and the Indrayani River and was originally known as 'Nagargaon'. The Sangameshwar temple built on the banks of the confluence is worth a visit. The Samadhi at Vadhu was unattended to until recently. It is now being renovated. Kavi Kalash's samadhi too is present at Vadhu. A Samadhi of Sambhaji Maharaj is situated at Tulapur as well. It is disputed as to where exactly he was cremated, with a group of historians asserting that he was cremated at Tulapur itself and not at Vadhu. Nonetheless, both these places have their equal share in Maratha history.
