Introduction:

Nagardhan, a majorly prehistoric town has been of great importance since ages. The town came into existence because of a Suryavanshi king. There are tales that mention that the real founder of this land was Nandvardhan, A king of the Shail Dynasty.

The land houses a fort, supposedly built by the Bhonsles comprising of brick walls. Nagzira has a wildlife sanctuary, gifted with an abundance of wild beasts resting in natural domains, that are a harmonious combination of lush greens and water bodies. The gaur is the star attraction here, along with sambar, deer, and many others from the vicious clan. Nearest railhead is Tiroda 19 kms, nearest airport is Nagpur, 122 kms from here.

Nagardhan, ancient Nandivardhan, the first capital of the Vakatakas, is 34 kms northeast of Nagpur and about 5kms south of Ramtek, famous for its fortified hill temple. The present land for at Nagardhan, probably built by Raghuji Bhosale I around 1740 AD, must have served the purpose of guarding the eastern approaches to Nagpur. Square in shape, it has an outer rampart with bastions and had an inner wall surrounding the buildings. The main gate, still in good condition, is on the north-west side.

In the fort there is a temple below the ground level and the idol is placed on a ledge of a well like structure. Not far away from the present for there is a place where big sized bricks of ancient periods are often discovered. This is said to be a site of the capital-cum fort of the Vakatakas.
