Padawali(Gupta Period)

After Naga period, the Gupta empire was established in this area. The 'Gotra' of the emperors of the Gupta
dynasty was 'Charan'. 'Gharon' village was inhabited near modern Padawali. Around Gharon there are the ruins
of several temples, houses and colonies. This new area of population is known as Padawali because it is
surrounded by several hills. Here was a magnificent ancient Vishnu Temple which was later converted into a big
'Garhi'. The terrace, the courtyard and the assembly hall of this temple are the 'epitome' of ancient culture. The
standing statue of a Lion on the ruined gate seems to say that there was a time when he used to watch the temple
with his companion at its gate. More than fifty monuments of different kinds can be seen at Padawali up to the
valley of Bhuteshwar.
