Karavati () (Kariaoti) village is in Gwalior district in Madhya Pradesh. Kariyawati PIN: 475220


The small village named Karavati is situated on the Dabra (Distt-Gwalior) Shivpuri road.


At a distance of 10 K.M. to the west of this village at the junction of rivers Sindh and Parvati (Sindhu and Para) the ancient grand City of Padmavati [1] was situated. Now-a-days this place is known as Pavaya or Padam Pavāya.[2]

The first mention of this city as Padmavati, is made in the Vishnupurana [4], where it is stated that the Nava-Nagas made, Padmavati, Kantipuri and Mathura their capitals and ruled for seven generations.
