Awesome place to visit

I had been to Gondia by road in March 2016. Gondia is a must-visit in the Tourism circuit of Maharashtra. The must-visit places around Gondia include the Hazara Falls, Garmata Devi Temple and the Navegaon National Park. The Hazara Falls is located around 50 kilometers from Gondia. This aca cascading waterfalls is a good picnic spot as well as a convenient camping site during weekends. The Garmata Devi Temple is located around 26 kilometers from Gondia and is equidistant from both Nagpur and Raipur at a distance of around 150 kilometers from both places. The Navegaon National park is spread over an area of 134 square kilometers and is located in the southern part of Gondia district. The National park can be reached by both road and railway.

Gondia Overview

Sprawling over an area of 5,431 sq km, Gondia is located in the state of Maharashtra. Popularly known as Gondiya, it is an administrative district with its headquarters located at Gondia. On the northern side of the destination lies Balaghat District of Madhya Pradesh and on the southern side, Chandrapur and Gadchiroli districts of Maharashtra. It is bounded by the Bhandara District of Maharashtra on the western side.

Due to the abundance of rice mills in the area, the city is also known as Rice City by the localites. Owing to the presence of over 1,000 rice mills along with small scale tobacco industry, the city is also an important business hub. From central and eastern India, Gondia is the gateway to the state of Maharashtra.

The history of the destination dates back to 1999, when it was carved out of Bhandara District. At present, the district is divided into 2 sub-divisions, namely Deori and Gondia, which are further divided into 8 talukas. The tribes residing within Gondia have their own distinct culture. For worshipping their God 'Persa Pen', they perform a special dance.

Rela dance is one of the most prominent dances performed by the tribal people to celebrate auspicious occasions and other important events. Some of the other popular dance forms include Dhol, Dander and Gondia. In addition, the place is also known for its handicrafts, which are influenced from Bhandara.

Besides art and culture, Gondia is a popular tourist destination with several sightseeing places. One of the most prominent tourist attractions is Navegaon National Park, which is located in the southern part of the city. Some of the animals that can be spotted in this park are jungle cats, tigers, panthers, palm civets and jackals. The destination is a treat for wildlife and nature lovers, with a famous wildlife sanctuary located at Nagzira. The sanctuary is home to 166 species of birds, 36 species of reptiles and 34 species of mammals.

Gondia can be reached by flights, buses and trains. Flights are available to Jabalpur Airport, which is the nearest domestic airport. On the other hand, those travelling from different parts of the world can board flights to Nagpur Airport, which is known as Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar International Airport.

Trains are also available, which are served by the Gondia Junction Railway Station, located within the destination. Chennai, Mumbai and Delhi are some of the places from where trains operate to this station. Tourists can also board buses to Gondia, which operate from cities like Pune, Nagpur and Ahmednagar.
