Satkhira District, Bangladesh



Satkhira district is located in the south western part of Bangladesh. Satkhira region was once a part of the ancient Banga Janapada. The previous name of Satkhira region was “Satgharia” (established by Zamindar Pran Nath Roy Chowdhury). During the permanent settlement, Bishnuram Chattergy, an official of Raja Krishna Chandra of Nadia, purchased Buran Pargana by auction in 1772 and settled Satgharia village. Prananath Roy Chowdhury, the son of Bishnuran Chattergy made remarkable development in the region. In 1781, most of the areas of Jessore, Faridpur and Khulna were brought under a single administration. But while peasant movement spread over the region against the oppressions of indigo planters and the local landlords in 1801, the British East India Company established a subdivision at Satgharia under Jessore district to control indigo revolt and to strengthen local administration in 1861. By this time “Satgharia” turned into “Satkhira” in the records of the British Company. After the liberation of Bangladesh, the subdivision was turned into a district in 1984.
