Akola , Maharashtra

Akola is a district in the Amravati region of Maharashtra. This is also one of theose towns which will make you want to go back into history and relive the great battles, however bloodthirsty they might be. Akola is definitely a town and district of historic importance and judging by the number of forts here, it was also in a definite need to be highly fortified. History remains to be one of the most mysterious parts of out lives and for any adventurer Akola holds a lure which will be very hard to ignore indeed. The Battle of Argaon between the British and the Maratha forces took part in here. There is constant reminder of the battle in every part of this district. The Narnala Fort, Akot Fort, Akola fort and the Balapur Fort are some of the great structures of the Maratha rule that will put you in awe with their sheer splendour. This is a land which has fought battles for years to liberate a country and it bears proud proof of all those wars. The ruins in the forts are the most revered parts of this land. The Purna River forms the part of north boundary of the district, and the top north portion of the district lies within its watershed along with Aas River and Shahnur River. The Vaan River forms the part of northwest boundary of the district after entering from the Amravati district. The whole setting makes Akola quite a breathtaking pace to be in, rich in crops and resided by brave people from time immemorial. This is one place you need to visit in order to get closer to the past that we keep losing a grip on.
