It is the administrative headquarters of Amravati district and also the divisional headquarters of North Maharashtra region. It is situated about 400 kilometres (250 mi) east of state capital Mumbai, on National Highway 6. The city has a population over 1 million people. The name "Amravati" comes from Sanskrit word 'Amaravathi', which means "the place where there is no danger". This land was ruled by Yadava kings who had their capital at Devagiri (modern day Daulatabad in Maharashtra). In 1347, when Delhi Sultanate invaded Deccan region all Yadava kings were destroyed and Devagiri became part of Delhi Sultanate's territory until it was captured by Bahamani sultan Alla-Ud Din Haider in 1490 CE. After this event, Malik Ambar established his rule over here before he moved to Ahmednagar.
