Baudh State, also known as Boudh State, was one of the princely states of India during the period of the British Raj. It was recognized as a state in 1874 and had its capital in Boudh town. Its last ruler signed the accession to the Indian Union on 1 January 1948.
Baudh was one among the 26 Feudatory States of Orissa. According to legend the state originated in a preexisting state that had been founded centuries before by a Brahmin who adopted as successor a nephew of the Raja of Keonjhar.
