About Amravati
Amravati, which literally means “the abode of immortals”, is a district in the state of Maharashtra. The district is situated midway in the northern border region of the state, within the Deccan plateau. The district derives its name from “Udumbravati”, which refers to the large number of Audumber trees found in the region. It is also said that the district is named after the renowned Ambadevi temple, which is a prominent religious place in the region. Historically, Amravati was a major region of the kingdom under the reign of Maurya King, Ashoka. Later it came under the governance of the Nizam, before being annexed in 1833 by the East India Company as a part of its growing empire.
