Sitabuldi Fort
 

The most prominent landmark of Nagpur and magnificent Sitabuldi Fort is located in the heart of the city, on the twin hills of Sitabuldi. The fort was built by a British Officer in 1857, to commemorate the dedication of the soldiers who lost their lives during the third Anglo-Maratha war known as Battle of Sitabuldi. A trough has been created around the fort for its protection. Inside the fort one can find graves of numerous British soldiers and a cell where Mahatma Gandhi was imprisoned. At present, Sitabuldi fort is the home to the office of the territorial army. The fort opens to the general public only on two national holidays- 26th January and 15th August.

The nearby attractions here are the temple of Ganesha (Tekdi Ganapati) at the back of the hillock, ancient temples of Lord Shiva and Vishnu, squash court, indoor swimming pool and the mausoleum of Nawab Kadar Ali (the great grandson of Tipu Sultan) near the eastern boundary wall of the fort.
