About Jagdalpur

Jagdalpur is a city in Bastar district in the Indian state of Chhattisgarh. In the times of yore, it was the capital of the former state of Bastar. The history of Jagdalpur takes us as deep into the past as Valmiki's Ramayana. It was the famous Dandakaranya through which Lord Rama is supposed to have passed. Scholars have also identified Valmiki's ashram here. One of the famous Hindu kings, Prithvi Raj Chauhan also ruled the Bastar city. The area has been ruled by the kings of numerous dynasties including the Nals, Kakatiyas and Chalukyas. Jagdalpur witnessed a tribal revolt in 1910, when the country was under the control of the British. The district is the homeland of the tribes of Marias and Murias. These colourful tribes have preserved their ancient culture to a great extent. The Jagdalpur city is famous for its traditional wooden handicrafts. The city is home to mountains, monuments, valleys, streams, waterfalls, forests etc. which makes it good destination for tourism.
