Raipur Travel Guide
Raipur, which was once a part of Madhya Pradesh, is the capital of the Indian state of Chhattisgarh. It is also known as the “rice bowl of India” because of the varieties of rice grown in the region. The Mahanadi river flows through the city.
It is one of the fastest growing cities of the country in terms of industries like coal, aluminium, power, steel and tourism. Doodhadhari Monastery, Vivekananda Sarovar, Vivekananda Ashram, Mahant Ghasidas Museum, Rajiv Gandhi Van and Urja Bhawan are some of the places to visit. One more important point of interest is the Nagar Ghadi which is a clock that plays the folk songs of Chhattisgarh. The weather is moderate throughout the year but the winter season is the best time to visit this place.Read More Read Less
