Adasa.—A small village in the Nagpur tahsil, 17 miles north-west of Nagpur, with a population of about 300 persons. The village contains five old temples. In the temple of Ganpati the image consists of a single stone set up so that worshippers may walk round it. On a hill near the village is a temple of Mahadeo with three
lingas, which are believed to have come, out of the ground by themselves. There are also two stone tanks built by members of the Bhonsla family. Small religious fairs are held here in November and January. The proprietors are Gosains, one of whom is also the manager of some land granted for the maintenance of the temple. Many of the residents are Brahmans.
