Sitabuldi Fort-A Historical Memorial

#Monument in Nagpur

The historical ancestry of the place marks the characteristic feature of the Sitabuldi Fort. As early as in 1757, in the pre-independence era this fort of Maharashtra was put up. The person who established the fort was British by birth. Crucial battle of Plassey marked the establishment of this well-reputed fort of Nagpur. In the year 1817 Mudhoji and Peshwa fought a third Anglo-Maratha war and faced a defeat at this place, as this war was for freedom, so it has become a war memorial.

A memorial is located inside the fort, which commemorates the dedication of the soldiers who lost their lives during the war between the British and the Marathas. This Fort has been one of the major attractions of Nagpur city from the pre-independent era. For the protection of the fort, a trough has been created around it. Now this fort is home for the 118 Infantry Battalion (TA) Grenadiers and it remains prohibited for public except Independence Day and Republic day when general public is allowed. Nearby attraction is Maharaja Baug and Seminary Hill, so visitor may enjoy those attractions.

Overall Rating:4.1

"I've given the rating 3, only because it's closed for public all year round, except in two or three occasions. It's a historical place, and public should have access to such nice fortresses. This place is not yet developed as a tourist attraction."
