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).
