Pavankhind Memorial Place 

Pavankhind Memorial Place is a well-maintained site by Maharashtra Tourism that holds great historical significance. It is the place 300 brave Mavalas lost their lives while stopping tens of thousands of Yavanas soldiers with their incomprehensible strength and guerrilla warfare. The love and respect given to the soldiers by Chhatrapati Shivaji is unparalleled, and the sacrifice of Bahirji Naik and Shiva Kashid will always be remembered.

Real experience in Pawankhind and Darshan of Mavalas 

Descending into the Khind,a narrow passage where three hundred Maratha soldiers lost their lives fighting for their king Shivaji, evokes a strange feeling of sadness. The thought of their selflessness and loyalty is truly inspiring to the new generation. Their sacrifice will always be remembered.
