The constant repulsion and war raged against the Britishers by the mighty Marathas led to a situation where the Britshers had to shed away their idea of taking over this place .while we learn the history of this place we should not forget to visit the very famous gawilgadh fort situated in Chikhaldara in Amravati district of Maharashtra.
