The largest city in Satpura range, and area wise the largest district in Madhya Pradesh, Chhindwara is nestled on a plateau and is surrounded by lush green fields, rivers and dense forest covered with diverse flora and fauna. Chhindwara stands throngs the Bodri Stream and is the origin source of River Pench that flows across Pench National Park.
Chhindwara is known as the "Corn City" of India and can be reached by rail or road from Nagpur and Jabalpur. Nagpur airport is 130 km from the city and is the nearest airport while a small air-strip is available at Chhindwara for landing charter planes.
It is believed that Chhindwara was full of "Chhind," i.e. wild date palm trees decades ago, and hence the place is called "Chhind"-"Wada" (Wada means place). Another legend states that because of the population of lions is called "sinh" in Hindi, it was considered that entering into Chhindwara is similar to entering the lions' den. Hence it was called "Sinh Dwara".
