Nagpur, which is known as the ‘orange capital of India’, is located in the Deccan Plateau. It is known as the ‘orange capital’ because it is a major cultivator and trade centre of oranges. It is the second capital/ winter capital city of the state of Maharashtra.

Nagpur is spread over a total area of 217.56 sq km. It is at a distance of about 837 km from Mumbai. It is about 1094 km south of Delhi, 1092 km north of Chennai and 1140 km west of Calcutta. The location of this city is almost in the centre of the country. For this very reason it has the Zero Mile Marker, which indicates the geographical centre of India.

The foundation of the city was laid by Bakht Buland Shah, who was the Gond King of Deogad, in the year 1703. It was given the name ‘Nagpur’ because of the Nag River that flows through the city.

After India’s Independence, Nagpur was made the capital of Madhya Bharat state, which included C.P. and Berar. In 1960, the Vidarbha region, which had a Marathi majority, was merged with the newly formed state of Maharashtra. Nagpur has a rich culture, which reflects the cultures from different parts of the country.

There are a number of tourist attractions in and around the city including Gavilgad Fort, Dragon Palace Temple, Forts of Balapur, Adasa, Maharaj Baug and Zoo. Gavilgad Fort, which is around 200-300 years old, lies close to the Chikhaldara hill station in Amravati district. It was originally built by the Hindu rulers at a height of about 370 ft above sea level.

The Dragon Palace Temple on the other hand is situated in Kamptee, which is a satellite township within Nagpur district. It is the temple of Lord Buddha and a holy place for Buddhists. Another major attraction in this place is the Fort of Balapur, which is in the Akola district. The fort is built between the Mana and Mhais Rivers. Besides being a popular tourist destination, it is also a place of pilgrimage because it is named after goddess Baladevi.

Nagpur is reachable by air, road and rail from different parts of the country. The domestic airport of Nagpur lies close to the city centre, at a distance of 6 km, and is well connected to major cities within the country. The nearest international airport is the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai.

By train, the destination is connected to the rest of the country through a number of super fast and passenger trains. It is an important rail junction in the South-East and Central Railways. Buses also connect Nagpur to regions in and around the state. Regular bus services are available from the city to Mumbai as well as other regions within and around the state.

The best time to visit Nagpur is from October to March. Ganesh Chaturthi is a big occasion here and it is also a good time to visit the place. The winter months are quite pleasant with an average temperature of 10⁰ Celsius while the summer months can be quite hot with the temperatures going as high as 50⁰ Celsius.

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted 5 days ago
Nice arrangements made by them and good overall crowd. Was worth going. Dj was good and did bartender also entertained us by showing some skills. Variety of liquers provided. The only thing which was disappointing was that drinks were made paid after 12:30 am. Otherwise worth going.

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
The souji chicken and souji mutton dishes are Nagpurs speciality. The hot and spicy gravy is a must try dish. Haldirams Santra Barfi and Sangam Barfi are the most famous sweets. Bardies is a place in Nagpur which has all cafes and food joints including Haldirams. Haldirams is a paradise for people with sweet tooth.

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
I and my family visited Nagpur when we came for the marriage of my cousin sister. First, I don't want to come but due to its beautiful temples and delicious food I was unable to stop myself. When the marriage was over, we visited all the famous places in Nagpur like Agree Ganesh Mandir Tekdi, Sri Baba Temple, Nagpur Ramtek Temple, Adasa Ganpati Temple and Fun & Food Village. We ate Chat, 'Badapaw', Ladoo, Pav Bhaji, Dabeli, Pani Puri. I also bought ten kilo oranges. Food was finger licking good. So, My friends must visit Nagpur.

"Fallen in love with Oranges"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
I actually like Nagpur because of its oranges. They are the one which excite me to visit again and again. Because of this beauty of oranges I would recommend you to visit Nagpur once in your life. It will help you to forget all those tensions in your mind and will help you in relaxing for some time. Those were my unforgettable moments of my life. I would like to visit once again to Nagpur.

"City of oranges-Nagpur"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
I had been to Nagpur and it was a dream come true experience for me. Such a green city and the most we enjoyed was the world class oranges available very cheap. The season in September is little bit cold, the winter just starts but generally its hot in the day.

"Hot place to be visited in winter"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Traveller should visit this place to see how small it is and how it is developing like metro cities even in worst hot situations. Futala lake, Zero mile (which the center of India), Ramtek mandir, Tadoba (but it is little far nearly 128 km). As such it does not have anything special food but for non vegans some of the dhabas serve "Sawaji bhojanalaya" will give you the amazing hot red spicy chicken which will bring water in your mouth by watching and smelling it. And "haldiram" outlets are very cheap over here. All the malls are near not more than 7-8 km from each other "Empress mall" is the very big mall with cheap PVR tickets. For refreshments and enjoyment here are some amazing amusement parks like "Fun & Food", "Crazy castle" etc. Tadoba, fun & food and sawji made by day. As an advice for travellers, I would tell visitors to visit here in winters cause in summer "it will bake you"

"Its good but little bit hot destination"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Oct 24, 2015
Nagpur is very hot place no need to carry warm cloths and many good restaurants and lake view are there. Good to hangout if you have good friends. Railway station is not well maintained but near station you will find every thing. We send 2 days but with friends 2 days are less atlest plan for 3-4 days
