Amravati

Amravati is ninth largest city in Maharashtra, India and second largest city in the Vidarbha region. It is administrative headquarters of Amravati district and Amravati division which includes Akola, Buldhana, Washim, and Yavatmal districts. It is one of Maharashtra's nominated cities under Smart Cities Mission.[6] The ancient name of Amravati is "Udumbravati", prākrut form of this is "Umbravati" and "Amravati" is known for many centuries with this name. Amravati is the incorrect pronunciation of this, and as a result, it now goes by that name. Amravati is claimed to have gotten its name from the city's historic Ambadevi temple.
