Pune’s Culinary Gem ‘Poona Guest House’ Commemorated with Postal Stamp

In a momentous recognition of culinary excellence and cultural significance, Pune’s iconic ‘Poona Guest House’ on Laxmi Road has been honoured with its own postage stamp. This historic milestone not only underscores the establishment’s dedication to serving authentic Marathi cuisine but also highlights its remarkable nine decades of contribution to Pune’s cultural landscape.

The unveiling ceremony took place at the PunePex exhibition, organized by the Government of India’s Department of Post at Balgandharva Art Gallery. The postage packet featuring the iconic Poona Guest House symbolizes not only its culinary prowess but also its role as a cultural institution deeply embedded in the hearts of Pune’s residents.

Established in 1935 by Nanasaheb Sarpotdar, a silent film producer, the Poona Guest House has transcended generations and is currently in the hands of the fourth generation of the Sarpotdar family. Beyond its reputation as a culinary haven, the guest house has served as a nurturing space for emerging artists, further enriching Pune’s cultural tapestry.

Poona Guest House Director Kishore Sarpotdar, along with Abhay Sarpotdar, Sadhana Sarpotdar, and Sharmila Sarpotdar, expressed their gratitude for this prestigious honour. Kishore Sarpotdar acknowledged the collaboration with the International Collector of Rare Society, highlighting that the release of the postal envelope featuring the guest house’s image will contribute to its recognition not only in Pune but across the country and beyond.
