Saharsa is a city and a municipality in the Saharsa district in the East Indian state of Bihar, situated near the eastern banks of the Kosi River. It is the administrative headquarters of the Saharsa District, and is the capital of Kosi Division of State of Bihar. Saharsa is also the name of the assembly constituency, which contains the city and neighbouring parts of the district. The name Saharsa has originated from Sanskrit word Saharsha translating into 'Laden with Joy'. The city has a mixed linguistic population with significant speakers of Maithili speakers. Hindi Urdu and Surjapuri is widely understood and spoken along side Maithili. English can also be used to communicate in the town regards to the increasing influences of globalisation in the region.HistoryEarlier, the Saharsa district was part of the Munger and Bhagalpur districts. On 1 April 1954 it was made a district of its own. It was also made headquarters of Kosi division on 2 October 1972, comprising Saharsa, Purnia and Katihar district, with its headquarters at Saharsa.
