Zero Milestone of Nagpur indicates the geographical centre point of India, which was used by the British to measure all distances within the Indian sub-continent.
There is a sandstone pillar and four horses beside Zero Milestone. Four horses denote four cardinal directions. The passion for cartography by the British led to many cities having zero stones. However, Zero Milestone of Nagpur is unique because it quite literally indicates the centre of India.

In addition to these, the Grand Trunk Route from Mumbai-Howrah, Howrah-Chennai, Chennai-Delhi railway lines pass through the city.
