Adavad is a village in the Chopada tehsil of Jalgaon district, Maharashtra, India.[1] Adawad is situated at base of the Satpuda Hills.

Just 3 km to the north west of Adavad is Unapdev which is famous for its hot water spring. This hot water spring emerges from a "Gomukh" - mouth of the Cow. Folklore has it that Lord Rama had shot an arrow which caused the spring to emerge while he was passing through in his years of vanvas (forest exile).

Apart from this Unapdev is also famous as a picnic spot in Jalgaon district. It lies in the midst of cultivated fields & green pastures adding to its beauty. It is one of the entry points for those who wish to trek the Satpuda hills.
