The capital city of the state of Chattisgarh, Raipur is also its largest. Before the formation of Chattisgarh, Raipur used to be a part of Madhya Pradesh. Bordered by the Mahanadi River on east, Maikal hills on the west, Chota Nagpur Plateau on the north, and Deccan Plateau on the south, Raipur is a landlocked city. Raipur features a tropical wet and dry climate, characterized by moderate weather conditions all year round with the exception of March to June (when it gets uncomfortably hot). You can get to Raipur by trains (Raipur Junction railway station) or flights (Swami Vivekananda Airport, located 15 km south of Raipur).
