PAWAS :

Besides its natural beauty and serenity, Pawas achieved prominence when Swami Swaroopanand (a spiritual leader who influenced an entire generation of Maharashtrians) had made it his abode. The place where he used to reside is now converted into an ashram. A visit there is still like a journey through time. Following the great saint Dnyaneshwari tradition Swami Swaroopanand too tried to spread his teachings in the cannon people. Now due to Swami Swaropanandas work Pawas has become a major place of tourist attraction. He made a new big family of devotees all over Maharashtra by chanting the Mantra 'Om Ram Krishna Hari'. He stayed here for a period of 40 years. Pawas is now one of the important holy places of Konkan. Samadhi of Swami Swaroopanand is there in the Pawas & also temple has been built for his devotees. The special variety of eatables of Konkan like 'Fanaspoli', Ambapoli, Amras & other different Konkani items are available to the tourists at a very reasonable rate. Near Swaroopanandas Samadhi on the Avala tree lord Ganesh Statue has appeared. People definately visit this place & also the house 'Anant Niwas' where Swami Swaroopananda stayed. It is 20 km. from Ratnagiri.
