Brief About Balaghat District
District Balaghat looks like a flying bird and is situated in southern part of Jabalpur division. It occupies the south eastern region of the Satpura and Upper Wainganga Valley. The district spans over a degree from 21.19' to 22.24' North and 79.31 to 81.3' East. The total area of the district is 9245 Sq. Km. District Balaghat is bounded by Rajnandgaon in the East, Seoni in the West, District Mandla in the North and District Bhandara of Maharashtra State in the south. The Wainganga River separates the district from Seoni while the rivers Bawanthadi and Bagh define the inter-state boundary.

Balaghat District was constituted during the years 1967-73 by amalgamation of parts of the Bhandara, Mandla and Seoni districts. The headquarter of the district was originally called "Burha" or "Boora". Later, however, this name fell into disuse and was replaced by "Balaghat", which was originally the name of the district only. The Wainganga is the most important river of the district.

The district is well connected by Bus, directly with important places such as Bhopal, Nagpur, Gondia, Jabalpur, Raipur etc. The District Headquarter is situated on Narrow gauge line of Jabalpur-Gondia section of South-Eastern Railway. The nearest Broadgauge Railway station is Gondia. The nearest Airport is at Nagpur.
