about chandrapur

Chandrapur, also known as moon city, is a city in the Indian state of Maharashtra. This city was founded in the 13th century by Gond King Khandakya Ballal Shah. Situated at the confluence of two rivers - Irai and Zarpat, this city is a major tourist attraction. It is very rich in mineral wealth like limestone and coal, and contributes towards the economy of the state. Due to a large number of coal mines, it is also known as Black Gold City. Also, there are many cement factories in the region.

A visit to Chandrapur is not complete without a visit to the famous Mahakali Mandir. This temple holds very high religious value and is visited by locals every day. Other than the main temple dedicated to Mahakali, there are small temples of Lord Ganesha and Lord Hanuman as well. Another prominent temple in this city is the Anchaleshwar Mandir. Dedicated to Lord Shiva, this temple is constructed on the banks of Zarpat River close and offers beautiful sight to behold. There are many places to visit in this city. To spend some leisure time, the best place to visit is Tadoba Lake. Tadoba Lake has nearly 20 marsh crocodiles, which may be seen floating by, or sunning on the banks. There is also a temple dedicated to the local deity Taru, situated on the banks of Tadoba Lake. Permission from the Forest Department is needed to visit the temple.

Chandrapur witnesses a hot and dry climate. Winters starts from the month of October and the temperature drops to a minimum of 9 degree celsius. May is the hottest month with a temperature of maximum 43 degree celsius.
