Must visit in the tourism circuit of Maharashtra

I had been to Amravati by road in the month of March 2016. Amravati is a must-visit in the tourism circuit of Maharashtra. The must-visit places around Amravati include the Melghat tiger reserve, Ambadevi Temple and the Hurricane Point. The Melghat Tiger Reserve is spread over 1600 square kilometers. This tiger reserve houses animals such as 75 tigers, 150 snake species and 250 bird species. The Ambadevi Temple is located at the centre of Amravati town and pilgrims do visit this ancient place during Navaratri. Ambadevi is a form of goddess Durga. The Hurricane Point is lush with greenery. There is a mixture of wildlife and waterfalls for tourists to savour in this majestic abode of beauty and grandeur.

Amravati Overview

Amravati is the seventh most populated city of Maharashtra and is famous for various temples and pilgrimages. With an average elevation of 343 metres, Amravati is situated 156 km away from Nagpur. Amravati means the ‘home of immortals’.

In earlier times, Amravati was a part of Berar which was a prominent part of the Mauryan Empire during the reign of Ashoka. According to Hindu mythology, Lord Krishna eloped with Goddess Rukhamani from her wedding ceremony using a tunnel from Ambadevi Temple situated in the city. The tunnel is said to exist even now.

The British East India Company got hold of Berar in 1883 and divided it in two divisions, Balaghat and north Berar. After independence Amravati became part of Madhya Pradesh in 1956 and after the creation of Maharashtra it became one of its districts. Amravati also had the honour to host one of the prestigious Indian National Congress assemblies in the pre-independence era, in 1897.

The economy of the district largely depends on agricultural activities. Amravati is also growing as an industrial centre, with cotton mills being an important industry. Amravati has a distinct identity in Maharashtra when it comes to culture and literature. Some famous personalities from Amravati in the field of literature and arts are Gopal Nilkanth Dandekar, Suresh Bhat also known as the Ghazal Samrat and others.

Amravati is also famous for various cultural activities and festivals like Navaratri, Garba, Diwali and Holi. The Sai Temple, the Bhaktidham situated in Sai Nagar and the Shree Swami Samarth Temple in Rahatgaon attract a lot of tourists. In recent years, Amravati has also emerged as a major educational hub for students of nearby towns and villages.

Amravati has a tropical climate and during the summer season the temperature rises upto 45° Celsius and decreases during winters to 5° Celsius.
