Changbhakar was one of the princely states of British Empire in India in the Chhattisgarh States Agency. It had an area of 899 square miles (2,330 km2) and a 1941 population of 21,266 people. Bharatpur was the capital of the princely state.
After the Anglo-Maratha war in the early nineteenth century, Changbhakar became a tributary state of British India. It was placed under Chota Nagpur States. In October 1905, it was transferred and brought under the control of the Commissioner of Chattisgarh division of Central Provinces. It acceded to the Union of India in January 1, 1948 and was placed under Surguja district of Central Provinces and Berar. Presently it is a Subdivision and a Tehsil of Koriya district of Chhattisgarh state.
