How did the Satpura series come about


The state of Chhattisgarh in central India was created when the 16 Chhattisghari-speaking districts in southeast Madhya Pradesh split off. The state has 25,540,196 inhabitants and covers an area of ​​135,190 km². The official language of the state is Hindi. However, a large part of the population speaks Chhattisghari and the population of the mountain regions, the Gondi, speak Dravidian. Raipur is the capital and is in the center of the state.


Chhattisgarh belonged to Madhya Pradesh until November 2000. With the independence of Chhattisgarh, the long-cherished demand of the tribes for independence was fulfilled. The region used to be known as the Dakshin causal. Between the 6th and 12th centuries, the Sarabhpurias, Panduavanshi, Somvanshi, Kalchuri and Nagvanshi ruled the region. With the arrival of the British in 1854, the city of Raipur became increasingly important. In 1904 the city of Sambalpur was annexed to Odisha and lands of Sarguja were transferred from Bengal to Chhattisgarh.


Over 80% of Chhattisgarh's population works in agriculture. The cultivated area has a share of 43% of the total area of ​​the state. Rice, wheat, corn, peanuts, legumes and oil seeds are predominantly grown.
Chhatthisgarh is rich in mineral deposits. Limestone, dolomite, coal and bauxite occur in large quantities. Tin ore is also mined in Chhattisgarh, the only Indian state. Iron ore, quartz, marble, garnet and diamonds are also mined to a lesser extent.
In addition to steel and iron processing companies, there are also a number of cement factories, as well as the food processing, chemical and plastics industries.

Cities and sights


Chhattisgarh is endowed with some cultural and scenic attractions. These include historical monuments such as temples, palaces and Buddhist cultural sites. In addition, the green state (44% forested) also has scenic attractions to offer, such as caves with rock paintings, waterfalls and high plateaus. Chhattisgarh is a real alternative for visitors who want to discover the beauty of India far from the main tourist attractions.

Climate & geography

The northern part of the state is on the edge of the Indo-Ganges plain, in which the River Rihand, a tributary of the Ganges, runs. The foothills of the Satpura Mountains and the western edge of the Chota Nagpur Plateau separates the Indo-Ganges plain from the valley of the Mahanadi River. The main part of the state lies in the fertile plain of the Mahanadi and the southern part of Chhattisgarh on the Deccan plateau. 44% of the state's area is forested.
