About District

The district has 14 police stations and covers an area of about 340,447 hectares (841,260 acres), Geographically, the district can be divided into two parts viz. (i) Hilly area and (ii) Plain area. The district has close linkage with the history of Shahabad, which was its parent district also. The old district of Shahabad had four subdivisions of which Bhabua was one. The present district of Kaimur has been formed from the whole of this Bhabua subdivision. The District of Bhabua is divided in wards e.g. Ward 6 for Gavai ward 12 near Patel chowk etc., all wards have a ward commissioner who looks after the welfare and civic affairs of the ward and the head of all the ward commissioner's is elected amongst themselves who is called the chairman.

Kaimur has an old and interesting history. In pre-historic days the plateau region of the district has been the abode of the aboriginals whose chief representatives now are the Bhars, the Cheros and the Savers. According to some legends, the Kharwar were the original settlers in the hilly tracts of Rohtas. The Ovaons also claim that they ruled over the stretch falling between Rohtas and Patna. One local legend also connects Sasaram the present headquarters of Rohtas with king Sahasrarjun, who was killed by Saint Parshuram in a fight.

The district of Kaimur formed part of the mighty Magadh Empire from the 6th century BC. to the 5th century AD., under the Mauryan Empire and Gupta rulers of Magadh. In the 7th century AD., this district came under the control of Harshwardhan, the ruler of Kannauj. An inscription in the Mundeshwari temple near Bhabua refers to the King Udaysena as the ruling chief of the area.

The Seal of King Sasanka of Guada in Bengal is inscribed at Rohtasgarh in the district of Rohtas. The Chinese pilgrim Huen- tang, who journeyed through the country in the 7th century AD., passed through Arrah, the headquarters of the old Shahabad district through this region of newly formed Kaimur district. The area of the district successively came under the rulers of Shail dynasty of Central India and Pal dynasty of Bengal.

According to C. Mark, a historian, the first ruler of Pal dynasty controlled this region. Later on Chandauli controlled Varanasi-Chandawali and also the Kaimur district in the 12th century, as confirmed by the Tarachandi inscription near Sasaram.

After the fall of the Guptas the district in all probability relapsed into the hands of the aboriginal tribes and came under the control of petty chieftains. The Rajputs who came from Ujjain and the province of Malwa had a series of conflicts with the aboriginals and it took them many hundred years to subdue the aboriginal completely.

The Census report of 1961 describes that when Bakhtiar Khiliji attacked Bihar in 1193 A.D. He found Shahabad in the hands of petty Rajput chiefs often fighting among themselves. They were not united and strong enough to offer powerful resistance to the Muslim invaders. Hence Bakhtiyar Khiliji had an easy victory over them and the district soon became a part of his kingdom. Later it was annexed, along with the rest of Bihar, to the kingdom of Jaunpur. A hundred years later, it passed under the direct control of the Muslim empire of Delhi.

Sher Shah's father, Hassan Khan Sur, got the Jagir of Sasaram. Later Baber invaded the area in 1529 and has mentioned Hindu superstitions about river Karmanasha. In 1537 the old Shahabad district witnessed advancement of Humayun and his subsequent conflict with Sher Shah at Chausa. Later the district of Shahabad which includes present Kaimur district also was included in Akbar's empire.

In 1758, Shah Alam during his conflict with Lord Clive of East India Company went to Durgawati and with the help of local Zamindar Pahalwan Singh crossed the Karmanasha River. Subsequently, Pahalwan Singh succumbed to comply and live on the latter's terms.

In 1764, the old Shahabad district witnessed conflict for supremacy and the English became absolute masters of the area after defeating Siraj-ud-daula in the battle of Buxar. Again the area was shaken by the rebellion of Raja Chait Singh of Banaras but eventually the English succeeded in suppressing the revolt.

Lastly the historic 1857 mutiny under command of Kunwar Singh had its impact in the district. As a result, during the independence movement the district had a substantial contribution to the freedom of India. Much after independence in the year 1972 Rohtas district was formed out of the old Shahabad district and in the year 1991. The present Kaimur district was formed out of the Rohtas district.
