The first few things that come to our mind when we say Nagpur are either oranges or Saoji food.

Sometimes, even Nagpurkars don’t think differently. In a way, it is sad because there is so much more to Nagpur than just santra barfi and tarri poha.

With a history that dates back to 5000 years, this city has seen the rise and fall of many dynasties, the more prominent ones being the Gonds and the Bhonsles.

A past this diverse has left its impact on the city’s architecture too. If you think you have to go to Mumbai or Delhi or Kolkata to see stunning architecture, it is time you looked a little around yourself.

Here are a few places in Nagpur that stand out because of their architecture:

Kashibai Temple
