Introduction:

               The historical village of Pavnar, said to be named after the legendary Rajput King Pavan, is situated on the banks of the Dham river. It is the site of an ashram, which was founded by the great social reformer and activist Acharya Vinoba Bhave for the treatment of leprosy patients - and also the location of the Gandhi Kuti. Recent excavation at the ashram unearthed stone panels dating to the Wakataka Dynasty - all of which are now on display on the premises.    

                Pavnar, of extreme historical importance, is strategically located in the district of Wardha on the verge of the Dham river. It forms one of the most prehistoric colonies in the district and gets its name from a renowned Rajput King by name Pawan. Of the few attractions that can be found here, are the Gandhi Kuti and the Paramdham Ashram of Vinobaji.

The latter is situated at a distance of 13 kms from the main land of Wardha. Nearest airport seems to be Nagpur, which is at a distance of 65 kms. Wardha forms the nearest rail head, at a distance of 12 kms. State Transport buses ply from Nagpur, Wardha to Pavnar into existence because of a Suryavanshi king.

There are tales that mention that the real founder of this land was Nandvardhan, A king of the Shail Dynasty. The land houses a fort, supposedly built by the Bhonsles comprising of brick walls. Nagzira has a wildlife sanctuary, gifted with an abundance of wild beasts resting in natural domains, that are a harmonious combination of lush greens and water bodies. The gaur is the star attraction here, along with sambar, deer, and many others from the vicious clan. Nearest railhead is Tiroda 19 kms, nearest airport is Nagpur, 122 kms from here.
