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.

"A good destination" new review

  • 2.5/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Nagpur could be enjoyed only by those people who are stressed out because of their hectic day to day routine. Nagpur is famous for its juicy Oranges, Gur ke rasgulle. There are not much places to visit here but one can enjoy being at peace. Best weather according to me is Feb as its not much cold and not warm as well. Happy holidays.

The green city of Nagpur shines with its all lakes - Ambazari, Futala and many more. Visit the city for a different experience. It is an exquisite palaces and wonderful sights. This is the place where the actual zero mile is.You should have a delightful and pleasant view of temples and gardens of the city. You should also discover the nearby tiger reserves..

"The real taste of Haldiram"

  • 5/7
  • Posted Aug 29, 2014
I had recently visited Nagpur & experience was so amazing in terms of lush green environment, clean and clear road and amazing environment due to rain. Many 5 stars hotels are coming near the airport. It is a good happening place to visit these days because of rains. Nagpur is famous for its haldirams sweets & I enjoyed the real taste of haldiram here.

  • Posted Aug 25, 2014
As I heard the Nagpur is famous for its fruit orange. And also called Orange city
But I cant seen there any of the tree of orange. But there is a daily marked named "mangalwari bazar".

Its dikhsha bhumi is also famous. But nothing to seen there .
