Kundinpur is small village in the Amaravati District and is one of the most sought after pilgrimage centers of the region. According to the historians, Kundinpur (or Kundalpur) was a capital during the ancient era. The hillocks in the village are believed to be ruins of temples and palaces. A place with unparalleled historical and mythological importance, Kundinpur is a place from where Rukmini is said to have been abducted by Lord Krishna.

The Vitthal Rukmini temple in this village makes up for the similar temple at the far placed Pandharpur. The temple of Vitthal Rukmini is more popular among young unmarried girls who frequent the place and pray for a good match. On Kartik Poornima, people from near and far off places throng this place of worship. Near the Vitthal Rukmini temple is also a tomb of Chauranginath. The other places of attraction around the village are Ambika Devi situated outside of the village and a pond called Pundlik Kund.

Kundipur is located on the banks of the Wardha river in Tiwsa Tehsil of the district and about 120 km from Nagpur.
