Yavatmal Info

Yavatmal of Maharashtra is a town known for its farmer population and hilly tracts of land. Yavatmal is located about 440 metres above sea level in the Vidharbha region. It is in proximity to Chandrapur, Amravati, Parbhani and Akola districts.

Yavatmal means ‘mountain row’. Interesting historical names of the town include Yavatecha Mahaal and Yot-Lohar. Yavatmal was the main town of the Deccan Sultanate of Berar. From the rulers of Ahmednagar, it was ceded to the Mughals. After the death of the last Mughal emperor, Yavatmal was taken over by the Maratha rulers. Raja Raghuji Bhosale then became its ruler.

Later, the British rulers annexed the kingdom. It was initially recognised as a part of central India but when the state of Bombay was formed, Yavatmal was included in it and subsequently it became a part of Maharashta.

Apart from the huge output of cotton, Yavatmal also produces jowar and wheat. Many famous clothing brands have set up their production centres in the town. Some of the attractions of the town include the Khojochi Mosque, Jagat Mandir, Datta Mandir as well as the nearby village of Kalamb, among others.

Yavatmal can be reached by air, rail and road. The nearest airport is at Nagpur at a distance of over 120 km. The city has its own train station which is well connected to places like Nagpur and Pune, among others. It is also well connected by road as it is located on Maharashtra State Highway 6 which runs between NH 6 and 7.

It has mostly a hot and dry climate with winters that stay moderately cold. The best time to visit Yavatmal is from October to February.

Yavatmal is one of the weekend getaway options for travelers living in Sewagram and Amravati.

"A Trip to Yavatmal"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jul 19, 2016
I had been to Yavatmal by road in the month of March 2016. Yavatmal is a traditional but important city in the tourism circuit of the Vidarbha region of north-east Maharashtra. Yavatmal is surrounded by districts such as Parbhani, Akola, Chandrapur and Amaravati. The must-visit places around Yavatmal include Kalamb, Waghadi river and the Painganga wildlife sanctuary. Kalamb is a small village near Yavatmal where an idol of Lord Ganesha can be sighted. Waghadi river is a wonderful sight for visitors to Yavatmal district.
