Pawas is located in the Ratnagiri District of Maharashtra, at a distance of about 20 km from Ratnagiri Town. The best time to visit Pawas is between October and March.
 
Pawas is a serene place which is known for its captivating natural beauty. It is an intrinsic part of the socio-cultural landscape and offers an insightful peek into life in Ratnagiri. 
 
Pawas  came into the limelight after it was chosen by Swami Swaroopanand for his ashram. Shri Swami Swaroopanand was a spiritual leader who influenced an entire generation of Maharashtrians. Pawas has become a prime spiritual place in Ratnagiri district due to a very long stay of Swami  Swaroopanand here. Swami Swaroopanand was a follower of Warkari Sampraday ( Tradition). He lived there for almost 40 years. His house has been converted into an ashram. On 15th August 1974, Swamiji had Samadhi (Self immolation) at Pawas. He was 70 years old.  His books and teachings will always serve as an inspiration and a guiding path for his followers for the ages to come.
 
In the premises of Swamiji’s temple at Pawas, there is a Dhyangumpha (Contemplation Room) and a Lord Ganeshji’s deity into a tree of Emlica. Swamiji’s home “Anant Niwas” is being preserved nicely by the trustees of the temple. Many festivals like Swamiji’s Birth Day, Gurupoornima etc. are celebrated in the temple. Many followers, not only from Ratnagiri but also from all parts of India believe in Swamiji’s Teachings.
