Don’t Miss Out on These Things to Do in Nagpur

Whenever somebody calls ‘Nagpur’, the first thing that comes to your mind is juicy and tasty oranges. Nagpur is a lot more than just the humble oranges; it is also known as the ‘Tiger City’ and one of the cleanest, safest, and most well-planned cities in the nation. Nagpur, being located at the center of Indian Penninsula, is green and luscious.

But you cannot deny the fact that it is not that thriving travel destination. People either come here for business meetings or professional outings. However, when they reach to the place, their myth about the city is shattered, much to their surprise. They find a lot of tourist spots like Mihan (SEZ project), Fun N Food, Crazy Castle, Deekshabhoomi, and Nagzira Wildlife Sanctuary.

So this weekend, get on one of the flights from Mumbai to Nagpur, and explore a wide variety of things to do in Nagpur.

flights from Mumbai to Nagpur

  • Capture the sunset at Lake Futala

Visiting Nagpur and missing out the sunset at Lake Futala will be an offence for a traveller’s soul. It is a really beautiful place to be at during sunset. You can see the sun bidding goodbye by kissing the Earth’s horizon, feel the breeze, and be relaxed. To top the experience, there are even the street food stalls that serve chaat. This place would be perfect for your last evening of your stay in Nagpur.

  • Visit the Deekshabhoomi to escape the hustle-bustle of the city

Although the beautiful architecture of this second largest stupa, hollow stupa, is very compelling, you cannot deny the peace its surrounding radiates. This place also has a big significance in history as Dr. B R Ambedkar converted himself to Buddhism here.

  • Witness the wilderness of Nagzira Wildlife Sanctuary

Popular as the ‘Tiger City,’ it is a home to tiger reserves. One such reserve lies in the Nagzira Wildlife Sanctuary. This sanctuary adorns beautiful landscapes, vegetation, and a total of 34 animal species. In this sanctuary, there are 12 tigers, 166 different species of birds, and a rich variety of flora and fauna. You can be here if you love greenery and wilderness.

  • Take blessings of Lord Ganesha at Shri Ganesh Mandir Tekdi

Situated in the Tekdi Foothills, it is one of the divine temples in Nagpur city. You can come here for the blessings of Lord Ganesha (Bappa). The divinity and serenity of the temple make it worth visiting.

  • Chicken lovers must stop at Saoji Chicken

Although Saoji is a popular traditional chicken of Nagpur, which is famous for its spicy and finger licking chicken curries, there is always a disclaimer that it could cause a bad stomach on the next morning. There is no pun intended and it is all true. But if you have not tasted Saoiji Waradi Chicken despite being in Nagpur, then your trip is a little incomplete. Some famous restaurants are Baba Saoji at Hingna Road, Tiger Saoji at Jaitala Square, and Sujal Saoji at Bajaj Nagar.

So, what are you waiting for? Book the cheapest air tickets by planning in advance and enjoy the splendour of Nagpur.
