Nagpur Overview

History of Nagpur

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.

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 Devgad, 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.
