Chandrapur

Chandrapur , Maharashtra

One of the biggest districts in the Nagpur division, chandrapur is a place in Maharashtra right on the Andhra pRadesh border which has always been a place of massive importance, It was also quite massive, being the largest district in the country till recently when it was divided. Ruled by a series of Buddhist and Hindu rulers from time immemorial, and then by the Gonds t still bears the marks of an ancient and prosperous rule later taken over by the Bhonsle Marathas. The district is quite big with 15 talikas and 6 constituencies. It also forms the eastern part of the Vidarbha region. One of the main attraction of this place is the is the Tadoba National Park which is one on the 28 iger reserves in the country. With the nearly extinct anials on the prowl here , it gives this place a very unique and wonderful level of beauty. Of course the summers are quite intolerable and thus the winters are the only times which will suit a tourist to visit Chandrapur. The entire area falls under the Godavari basin and is drained by many of the tributaries. These make a very unique set up for this whole place and show us a part of India that we are very unlikely to ever see. One of the places which is under the Red Corridor, this is a place which have been plagued by the many Naxalite attacks and thus have had a great impediment in the growth of this region. The city of Chandrapur has ancient temples of the goddess Mahakali and of Anchaleshwar, a form of the god Shiva. Chandrapur is also known as Chanda. The region is very rich in mineral wealth such as iron ore, limestone and coal. Thus there are many cement companies which are trying to establisg here and pull this place up to the state where it should be.
