Jabalpur History - Jabalpur Tourism

Jabalpur was known as Tripuri and was governed by Hayahaya rulers. The ancient Indian epic of Mahabharata has references to this city. Later Jabalpur became a part of the great Mauryan and the Gupta Empires. In AD 875, it was taken over by the Kalchuri dynasty who made Jabalpur their capital. The Gonds later seized Jabalpur city in the 13th century, and made it their capital. By the early 16th century, it had become the powerful kingdom of Gondwana.

From time to time, the Mughal rulers tried to overrun it. The legendary Gond Queen Rani Durgavati died fighting the Mughal forces led by the great Mughal Emperor Akbar. It finally fell to the Marathas in 1789 and was taken over by the British in 1817, when they defeated the Marathas. The British made Jabalpur the commission headquarters of the Narmada territories and established a cantonment here.
