Brief About Mandla District
Mandla is a tribal district of Madhya Pradesh.The district Mandla is situated in the east-central part of Madhaya Pradesh. The district lies almost entirely in the catchement of river Narmada & its tributaries. A district with a glorious history, Mandla comprises of numerous rivers and endowed with rich forests. The world's famous Tiger Sanctuary, Kanha National Park located in the district, is one of the hottest targets for both the domestic as well as foreign tourists.

It covers a total area of 8771 Sq.Km. and consists a total population of 779414. There are 9 blocks 4 Tehsils and 1214 villages in the district.Mandla district is surrounded by holy river Narmada.

ORIGIN OF THE NAME

Mandla district derives its name from the headquarters town, Mandla. Three traditions about the name Mandla are more or less prevalent in the area. Caption H.C.E. Ward recorded its puranic details relates Mandla to the Sanskrit word 'Mandal' meaning a circle; because the river Narmada almost girdles the town on three sides. According to another view, the real name of Mandla is said to have been 'Mahish-mandal', or 'Mahishmati' of ancient Sanskrit literature, which was the capital of Kartvirya of the thousand arms from whom where sprung the Garha-Mandla kings. Under the clear cold light of criticism, however, the weakness of the story becomes palpable; the Mahishmati of Sanskrit legend has been proved by Dr. Fleet to be Mandhata in Nimar disrtict, whereas our Mandla is probably a survival of the word, 'Mandla' or feudatory state. The Brahmans identify it with Mahismati which is said to have been one of the ancient seats of the Haihaya princes. The Mandla is not probably the name of a place, as it mean only a district. The original name might have been Mahishmati-Mandla, of Mahes-Mandla, which has now become simply Mandla. The third view of the probable origin of the name is that the word 'Mandla' is probably a survival of the word 'Mandal' or feudatory division of the kingdom of the Kalachuri kings of Tripuri.

LOCATION

Mandla district is located in the east-central part of the Madhya Pradesh. It is a eastern part of the Jabalpur district. The district forms a part of Satpura hills, which separates the cotton growing of the south from the wheat growing extension of the Malwa Plateau on the north, and is the watershed of three district river systems. It lies between the latitude 220 2' and 230 22' north and longitude 800 18' and 810 50' east. The tropic of cancer thus passes through the north of the district. The total area of the district is 13,269 Sq. Km. Thus before bifurcation it was the 6th largest district in the state. Its extreme length is about 133 km. from north to south and extreme breadth 182 Km. from east to west. The total population of the district was 12,91,263 persons as per census of 1991.

The Dindori, Shahpura Tahsils and Mehandwani development block formed Dindori district while rest of the area existed in Mandla District.
