Pimpri-Chinchwad Overview

The twin towns, Pimpri-Chinchwad, are integral part of the Pune District of the state of Maharashtra. Pimpri and Chinchwad are governed by the Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC). These two towns are located on the old Pune-Mumbai Highway and are connected with the main city of Pune.

The term Chinchwad is a combination of two words, 'Chinch' which means tamarind and 'Wad' that refers to banyan. This town is popular for its shrine of Saint Morya Gosavi which is also the Shakti Peeth of Lord Ganesha. Every year, during the flood caused by Pavana River, the entire temple gets submerged in water. As per legend, the submersion is believed as bathing of Lord Ganesha in the temple. An annual yatra during the month of 'Shravan' also takes place at the Morya Gosavi Temple.

The great freedom fighters, Chapekar brothers, were also born in the town of Chinchwad. Bhosari town, originally called as Bhojapuri, is also situated at Pimpri-Chinchwad. This small town of Bhosari was once the capital of the kingdom of the Hindu king Bhoj. Besides, Bhosari was also called as Bhojkata during the Mahabharata period. During this period, it was the capital town of the Bhoja-Yadava King Rukmi.

Pimpri-Chinchwad region is one of the largest industrial zones in the entire Asia. Majority of the industrial estates in these two towns were established by Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC). Some of the famous automobile companies like Bajaj Auto, TATA Motors, Kinetic Engineering, Premier Limited and Mahindra Navistar have established their industries in these towns.

Moreover, Chinchwad is famous for the Ram Krishna More Auditorium which is located in the heart of the town. This auditorium is venue of drama and plays, which are organised regularly. Pimpri is also known for the newly built temple of 'Vaishno Devi', which is similar to the actual 'Vaishno Devi' Temple in Himalayas.

The town of Pimpri has an entrance gate which is 14 ft high and has been mentioned in the Bombay Gazette of 1885. Few important 10th century stones with inscriptions were also found in Pimpri. Indira Gandhi Udyan (Appu Ghar) is also situated near the town of Pimpri, which features different types of rides, ethnic huts and games.
