About the event
The kingdom of Nagpur was founded by the Gond rulers of Deogarh and it later came under the rule of the Nagpur Bhonsles. The Nagpur kingdom was at its peak during the eighteenth century under the Bhonsle rule. Various temples, lakes, markets, wadas (traditional homes of Maharashtra), gardens, palaces, etc. were developed during their rule.
This walk will include a visit to the historic Kashibai temple complex, located on the shores of river Nag. The temple complex is the raj ghat (royal crematorium) of the Nagpur Bhonsles. The participants will also be made aware of the history of the chhatris (cenotaphs) which are a part of the complex. The oldest chhatri in the Kashibai temple complex is more than 260 years old, commemorating the Bhosale kings and their wives.
