Gondia is located on the north-eastern part of the state of Maharashtra and is bordered by states like Chattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh. It is considered to be the entry point to the state in this direction. Gondia was developed as a separate district much later in 1999 and was earlier a part of the Bhandara district. Spread across an area of 4843.13 sq km, it is located at 70.39 to 21.38 N and 89.27 to 82.42 E latitudes.

In order to streamline the administration of this district it has been divided into two separate divisions namely Deori and Gondia. The city of Gondia is also referred to as the “Rice City”. The river Wainganga flows through this district along with its tributaries like Gadhavi, Bagh, Bavanthadi and Chulbandh. There are some places of religious and historical interest in Gondia and these include Pratapgarh, Kachargarh, Sukadi and Bangarh.

There are several places of interest in and around Gondia. Nagra located at a distance of just 5 kms is a 15th century excavation and is one of the oldest Shiv temples. The Nagzira Sanctuary, located at a distance of 40 km from the district, houses as many as 34 different species of wildlife ranging from jungle cat, leopards, spotted deer, tiger, sloth and gour. Within the radius of 50 km from Godia, is located the Hazara Fall. This fall is a natural oasis and the adjoining site of Darekasa serves as a camping ground. The Nawegaon National Park is the prime attraction here located about 65 kms from Gondia. With the Nishani hills as its backdrop, this sanctuary is a nature lover’s delight. Though a small district, Gondia offers a lot of variety to the tourist.
