Information about Fascinating History Of The City


The History of Jabalpur dates back to the epic times. It is discovered that the name of the city Jabalpur comes from a combination of the Arabic word Jabal= Mountain and the Sanskrit word Pura = city. It is believed that Jabalpur is the tapasya bhumi of Sage Jabali. There are references to Jabalpur in the epic Mahabharata.

Jabalpur has seen the rise and fall of many dynasties. Jabalpur was for a long time under the Mauryas and the Guptas. Then it was taken over by the Kalchuri dynasty who made Jabalpur the capital city. The Gonds seized it later by the 12th century and Jabalpur became the powerful kingdom of Gondwana. Then Mughals kept invading the place but Gondwana always fought back. One of the sacrifice of the Gond royals include the dead of the legendary Gond Queen Rani Durgavati.

Finally in the 18th century Jabalpur fell in the hands of the Marathas and in 1817 the British. The British made Jabalpur the commission headquarters of the Narmada territories and established a cantonment here.
