"I see a comment below saying the owner of the zero mile landmark has responded! How funny! The first review is OK; but the owner has replied?. But who can own the National Monument that's ZERO MILE STONE? Regarding the centre point of India, yes, this was officially the centre point of India till recently, when the centre is now moved to a place around 80 km eastward in Madhya Pradesh State. Still the 20 foot something pillar is famous, and is the pride of Nagpur! "

"It is just a landmark on busy road. Nothing much to see here , just a stone in circular park saying this spot is zero miles. If you came this far , I recommend you to visit Nagpur Central Museum , it is just at a walking distance from this spot."

"Not something amazing. Just a pillar. The name is heavy but not the monument which is just a small pillar."
