Satna City is the principle town of Satna District of the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, which shares a border with neighbouring Uttar Pradesh.Satna - not to be confused with Satana - is a municipal corporation within Satna District, and houses the administrative headquarters of Satna District.HistoryRecent HistorySatna District is part of the region of Bagelkhand, of which a large part was ruled by the princely state of Rewa while a small part was ruled by feudatory chiefs, holding their states under the British Raj. Satna's name comes from the river Satna (or Sutna) that originates at Sarang Ashram (Sutikshna Ashram) situated near Sarangpur village of Panna district.(Previously the Sutna was the name of the railway station, the town being Raghurajnagar but gradually the name for the station became associated with the city that is now Satna.)In the Ramayana Era, Lord Rama stayed in the region of Chitrakoot; one half of which is in the outskirts of Satna, the other in Uttar Pradesh.Once a British headquarters the Baghelkhand Agency was established in Satna in 1872 (and abolished in 1931).
