In the country’s famous Deccan Plateau, at the exact centre of the Indian Peninsula, lies Nagpur. Famed as the ‘City of Oranges’ and the capital of the erstwhile Central Provinces, Nagpur blends the ambience of small town and metropolis beautifully. Founded by the Gond king Bakht Buland Shah in 1702, the city has several beautiful buildings and quite a bit of green.
The Poddareshwar Ram Mandir on Central Avenue is a must-visit. Built in 1923, this beautiful temple complex of marble and sandstone has extremely engaging murals, carvings, and architecture. Deekshabhoomi is a 120-ft towering dome built to mark the conversion of Dr B R Ambedkar (the renowned Indian jurist, economist, politician and social reformer who campaigned against social discrimination) and thousands of his followers to Buddhism in 1956. The dargah (Sufi shrine) of Baba Tajuddin is also worth visiting.
While in Nagpur, don’t miss the chance to pick up the city’s wonderful oranges.
