Nagpur's first reference dates back to the 10th century, when an inscription on a copper-plate was discovered at Devali in the neighboring Wardha District. Many illustrious dynasties like the Vakataka Dynasty during the 4th century, Badami Chalukya's, the Rashtrakuta's and finally the Yadava's - all left their mark on this city. The city was later captured by the Mughal Empire & the present day city of Nagpur is credited to have been founded by the Bakut Buland - who was the last prince of the Deogarh-Nagpur Kingdom.

And present day Nagpur lies in the state of Maharashtra - which geographically lies at the center of the countries map & the same can be seen at the "Zero Mile" marker in the city.
