Many historical records state that Bilaspur was named after a fisherwoman named Bilasa, who lived in this area in the 17th century. During this time, Bilaspur was a village comprising of many fishermen’s huts. One of the major cities in the state of Chhattisgarh, Bilaspur has a glorious and significant history dating back four centuries. Before Bilaspur City gained its stature around the year 1741, the year of Maratha Empire rule, it was part of the Kalahari dynasty of Ratanpur. The Bhosales of the Nagpur kingdom were the last Maratha clan to rule this region. Later, in 1818, Bilaspur was taken over by the British Government, during which time it suffered from many famines and droughts. \nThough Bilaspur was blessed with 25 years of prosperity, later, there was very little rain leading to drought conditions again. Between 1820 and 1830, Guru Ghasida, who belonged to the farming community, started a religious movement called Satnamis, who preached that God is a synonym of truth that cannot be found in idols.
