History of Jabalpur

The name of the city Jabalpur is derived from mythological hindu sage “Rishi Jabali”. Rishi Jabali spent many years of his life in Jabalpur region. It is also said that, name of Jabalpur city can also be derived from Arabic word “Jabal” which means Mountain. As one can find mountains all around Jabalpur city, so this possibility cannot be ruled out.

It is said that in ancient times, Jabalpur was known as Tripuri Kingdom. Tripuri Kingdom was ruled by Hayahya rulers. In ancient epic of Mahabharata, one can find reference of Tripuri State. Later it became part of Mauryan and the Gupta Empires. In 875 AD, Kalchuri conquered the Jabalpur region and made it their capital. At the same time Gonds were also ruling adjoining areas of Jabalpur. Later Gonds increased their strength by acquiring more areas of Jabalpur and established their capital in Garha, Jabalpur. Here they made Garha fort, Madan Mahal fort etc. Upon reaching 16th century, Gond kingdom was in his golden time. During that time, Gond Kingdom was ruled by Sangram Shah, Dalpat Shah, Vir Narayan (virtually ruled by Rani Durgavati). After war with Mughal forces, gonds loosed their fame and strength and Mughals dominated the region for some time but indirectly. Later in 17th century, Marathas conquered this region and ruled for some time. In 1798 the Maratha Peshwa granted the Narmada valley region to the Bhonsle princes of Nagpur, who continued to hold the district upto 1818. Britisher occupied it in 1818 after defeating the Marathas.
