About Sitabuldi Fort

Sitabuldi Fort is located in central Nagpur and is the hub of tourist attractions of the city. Situated in between two hillocks named as 'Badi Tekri' (meaning big hill in Hindi) and 'Choti Tekri' (implying small hill), the Sitabuldi Fort stands tall as the witness of famous Sitabuldi battle against the Britishers. The fort was built by Mudhoji II Bhonsle of the Nagpur Kingdom prior to his fight in against British East India Company during the third Anglo-Maratha war. The battle was fought between the two forces in between the aforementioned hillocks in November 1817. Highly rough, rocky and treeless ground of Sitabuldi upon which the battle was fought remains as such even today; so you can imagine all the men with swords on horses and tanks. This war also set the tone for India’s freedom. It is said that Sitabuldi gets its name from two Yadhuvanshi brothers- Shitlaprasad and Badriprasad Gawali who ruled the placed during the 17th century. It is now home to the 118th infantry battalion of the Indian Army.
