Beed is a city located in the Marathwada region of Maharashtra, India. It serves as the administrative center of the Beed district. The historical origins of Beed trace back to medieval times, with uncertain early history. Historians suggest that it could have been established by the Yadava rulers of Devagiri (Daulatabad). Legends even link Beed to the periods of Pandavas and Kurus as Durgavati. One of the city’s remarkable landmarks is the Kankaleshwar Temple, recognized in historical texts dating back to the 1500s. This temple, constructed in black stone near an artificial lake, displays architectural similarities to the Ellora caves. Notably, the Sautada waterfall, situated on the border of Beed and Ahmednagar districts, attracts visitors from various parts of Maharashtra. The city features limited public spaces like cinema halls and a modest garden. Over the years, cinema halls have reduced to two, namely ‘Asha’ and ‘Santoshimata’. In the past, there were also two parks under municipal council maintenance until 1969.
