Nagpur, better known as the ‘Orange City’, is the winter capital of Maharashtra. It is the largest city in
central India and the third largest city in the state of Maharashtra after Mumbai and Pune. It has
recently been ranked as the second greenest city of India after Bangalore. Nagpur is located precisely at
the centre of India; the Zero Mile Stone indicating the geographical centre of India. The city was founded
by the Gonds, but later became part of the Maratha Empire under the Bhonslas.
Due to its central location, Nagpur (Central Railway) is an important junction and a transit terminal for
trains that connect the country both length-wise and breadth-wise. All major trains halt at Nagpur
connecting the city to all Indian metropolises. Nagpur is also connected to all major cities in the country
as two major national highways: Kanyakumari- Varanasi (NH-7) and Mumbai-Kolkata (NH-6)pass through
the city. The city’s airport is on the map of international airports.
Nagpur is quite famous for its historical landmarks as well. The Boudha Stupa at Deeksha Bhoomi,
Kasturchand Park, and Ramtek (where Kalidasa is believed to have written the Meghdootam) are some
of the major sites. Raman Science Centre is also a major attraction. Nagpur is also surrounded by
wildlife sanctuaries like Pench and Bor. Sewagram and Paonar, the seats of Gandhiji and Vinoba Bhave
respectively, are just an hour away from the city.
