Garbeta is a census town in Garhbeta I CD Block in Medinipur Sadar subdivision of Paschim Medinipur district in West Bengal, India. It is on the bank of the Shilabati. Gar in Bengali means a nullah. The boundary of the earlier town was surrounded by a small nullah. Garbeta can also be spelled as Garhbeta.HistoryGarhbeta has a very rich history from ancient era. In the epic age the area of Garhbeta was called Bakadwip and its span was 450 sq. miles.In the era of Mahabharat this Bakadwip was under the jurisdiction of Bakasur.Its kingdom was Betrabati.Bhimsen killed Bakasur.Srikrishna came from Dwaraka to congratulate Bhim. In memory of this Yudhisthir set up an image of Krishna. At present the image of God Krishna Rai Jew in the village of Krishnanagar is that very image set up by Yudhisthir.Other opinions about the nomenclature of Grahbeta. A vast area was called Baghratati. Once Siharuddin Bugrasah, the son of Samaduddiin Firoj Sah, the ruler of Bengal occupied this area. The place is named Bagri after the name of Siharuddin Bugrasah. During the reign of King Vikramaditya a Yogi (Sage) came to the kingdom of Bagri.He was charmed to see the beauties of nature and in order to display his religious devotion, he built the temple of Sarbamangala. Hearing of the miraculous power of the goddess Sarbamangala. Then King Vikramaditya came to Garhbeta and devoted himself to meditation on the corpses (Sabsadhana).Being pleased with him the goddess Sarbamangala blessed him with the power to dominate over Tal Betal, so called supernatural figures. To prove the success of goddess's blessing showered upon him Vikramaditya ordered Tal Betal to turn the face of the temple from the south to the north. The order was instantly carried out. The name of the place was given Beta after the name of Betal.During the reign of Kumar Gupta in the Gupta Age his courtier Betra Barma founded this town. Probably Betra Barma built a fort for protection of the town. 'Fort' is called 'Garh' in Bengali. The king excavated a deep canal round the fort. There were four gates to four sides of the fort. They were Lal Gate to the north, Pesha Gate to the south, Rahut Gate to the east and Hanuman Gate to the West. Probably at first the town was named Betra Garh. In course of time the term Betra Garh had been changed into Garh Betra and then into Garhbeta.
