A memorial located inside the fort

The distinctive feature of the Sitabuldi Fort is the historical ancestry of the place. This fort of Maharashtra was put up as early as 1757, in the pre-independence era. The person who established the fort was British by birth. The year of establishment of this well-reputed fort of Nagpur is the same as the year in which the very crucial battle of Plassey was fought. In the year 1817 Mudhoji and Peshwa fought a third Anglo-Maratha war and faced a defeat at this place, as this war was for freedom, so it has become a war memorial.A memorial is located inside the fort, which commemorates the dedication of the soldiers who lost their lives during the war between the British and the Marathas. From the pre-independent era, the Sitabuldi Fort has been one of the major tourist spots of Nagpur. For the protection of the fort, a trough has been created around it.Now this fort is home for the 118 Infantry Battalion (TA ) Grenadiers and it remains prohibited for public except Independence Day and Republic day when general public is allowed. Nearby attraction is Maharaja Baug and Seminary Hill, so visitor may enjoy those attractions.

Center of attraction in the heart of Country

Sitabuldi Fort opens the historic Sitabuldi Fort and will remain open for citizens on August 15 between 8 am and 4 pm.

Visit only during national holidays

This fort is about 200 years old, it is in middle of salable center of Nagpur and it is under Indian Army. Be lucky to visit this place on national holidays because that is the only time it is open for public.
