Paithan

About

Paitan, formerly known as Pratiṣṭhāna is located on the banks of Godavari in the Aurangabad district of Maharashtra. Paithan was the birthplace of Nimbarka, the founder of the Nimbarka Sampradaya tradition of Vaishnavism and was also the home of the great Marathi saint Eknath. People flock yearly to his shirne during the time of the Paithan yatra, also known as the Nath Shashti. It is also a famous Digambar Jain atishay kshetra (Pilgrimage place of miracle). A beautiful Black coloured Sand Idol of 20th Jain Tirthankar, Bhagwan Munisuvratnath is installed in temple here. It is believed that all wishes are fulfilled by praying here.

Saint Jaganade Maharaj Temple is also one of the important places to visit in Paitan. He was one of fourteen cymbal players employed by Shri Tukaram Maharaja, a prominent Marathi Saint and has recorded several of Tukaram's Abhangs. He is the only Saint from the Teli caste of oil producers.

The town is also famous for its saris — the beautiful Paithani silk saris that sport intricately embroidered gold or silver borders
