Pavnar

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.
