History

Main localities in Pimpri Chinchwad are Chinchwad, Pimpri, Nigdi, Akurdi and Bhosari. The name Chinch-wad is derived from trees Chinch (tamarind) and Wad (banyan). Chinchwad is famous for Saint Morya Gosavi’s Shrine which is one of the lord Ganesha’s shaktipeeth in Maharashtra state. Due to the flooding of river Pavna every year the temple gets submerged in the river water. Local people consider it as bathing of lord ganesha. Chinchwad is also the birthplace of great freedom fighters Chaphekar brothers. Pimpri Chinchwad is home to the historic town of Bhosari originally known as Bhojapuri. Two thousand years ago it was the capital of legendary Hindu king Bhoj. During the period of Mahabharata this city was known as Bhojakata, the capital of the Bhoja-Yadava king Rukmi. It is mentioned in Mahabharata that Bhojakata lied to the west of Kundinapuri, the capital of Vidarbha Kingdom
