INDIA : Aurangabad : Paithan - Dnyaneshwar Garden

The ancient city of PRATHISHTHAN, known as PAITHAN, located at 56 kms of south of Aurangabad. It was the seat of SATVAHANA DYNASTY who ruled from 2nd century BC to 2nd century AD.

This beautiful and pleasent city is situated on the banks of the consecrated river GODAVARI.

This small town is famous for its shrine of "SANT EKNATH", which adds it special spiritual atmosphere.

Every year on NATHSHASHTI, which usually falls in the month of March, a big fair is held called 'PAITHAN YATRA' which last about 10 days. People from far and near come to pay their homage to SANT EKNATH.

Paithan, which was once an important seat of learning, is also famous for its beautiful SILK SARIS which sport elaborately embroidered gold or silver borders called 'PAITHANI'.
