Background

This district is triangular in shape. River Ajay forms the southern base whereas the apex of the triangle points to the north. The river forms the boundary between the districts of Birbhum and Bardhaman. The state of Jharkhand is located at the northern and the western border of Birbhum and Murshidabad is located at the east. Geographically, this area lies at the north-eastern end of the Chota Nagpur Plateau, as it slopes down and merges with the alluvial plains of the Ganges.
The western portion of the district is historically known as Vajjabhumi or Bajrabhumi. It is an undulating upland that is generally barren. The comparatively more fertile eastern portion, constituting the northeastern Rarh region, merges with the Gangetic plain. Vajjabhumi is also included in the Rarh region, and rest of Rarh is called Sumha to differentiate it from Vajjabhumi
Rarh was part of the territory ruled over by the MAURAYAN Emperors, and was subsequently included in the empire of the imperial GUPTAS, of SHASANKAS and of HARSHAVARDHANA. After dismemberment of Marsha's Empire , it was included in the PALA kingdom and formed a part of it until middle of 12th Century A.D. when the overlordship passes to the SENA kings.
In the 13th Century A.D. the district passed under the rule of the SULTANATE KINGDOM / MUGHALS, and according to some authorities, Lakhanor ( or Lakhnur), an important frontier post of SULTANATE KINGDOM / MUGHALS territory, lay within its limits. After this, for many centuries the controls of the Sultanate Kingdom / Mughals over the Western part of the district appears to have been merely nominal, and the country was left under the rule of Hindu chiefs, called "BIR" Rajas.
