Amravati Travel Guide, India

Amravati, also famous by the names of Amraoti or Amrawati, happens to be the city located in the state of Maharashtra, India. The king of all Gods as per Hindu mythology is Lord Indra and Amravati is said to be the city where Lord Indra resided. The city of Amravati is famous for its historical temples like those of Lord Shri Krishna, Goddess Amba, and the very famous Shri Venkateshwara. There are four basic districts that are counted under the Amravati region and they are Yeotmal, Amravati Division Akola, Washim, and Buldhana.

Amravati is located around 200 kilometers from Nagpur and this has been an important reason why tourism didn’t die out in this city. People visiting Nagpur (which lies in the proximity of Mumbai, the capital of Maharashtra) many times visit Amravati so as to enjoy the historical monuments and rich culture of this city.

Similarly to other fast growing cities of India, Amravati is also experiencing rapid growth and it has started to fight some of the larger cities of India in terms of quality of living. Roads and flyovers built using the modern technology have eased up the traffic conditions of the city. Similarly, the traffic signals which use the latest technology are a boon for the ever growing city.

Amravati has quickly grown as an important industrial center for India. The most talked about industry in Amravati is cotton industry. The reason behind excelling cotton industry is the location of Amravati which is next to the passes through those hills which are responsible to separate the cotton growing sections of the region.

National Highway 6 (which is also the part of Asia Highway 6) passes through the city and is responsible for connecting Kolkata to Surat. The city of Amravati has started to expand its reach to Badnera which is a small town located around 10 km from to south of Amravati. This is the place where the railway station of Amravati can be found. This railway station is responsible for connecting the city of Amravati to most of the important neighboring cities.

Its cotton industries and the means of transport have made Amravati an important city for India and critics regularly comment that Amravati will soon top the metropolitan cities of India.
