[1] This city is located between 26 degrees and 28 degrees north latitude and 83 degrees and 85 degrees east longitude, out of which district Kushinagar was created in 1994 by taking north and east portion of Deoria district.

Currently, Deoria district has five tehsils, namely Deoria sadar, Salempur, Rudrapur, Berhaj and Bhatparrani.


[2] Current area of this district was a part of 'Koshal rajya'- a prime centre of ancient'arya culture' surrounded by Himalaya in north, Shyandika river in south, 'Panchal rajya' in west and Maghadh rajya in Bihar east. Besides many fictions related with this area, astro-historical fossils ('murtee',coins,bricks, temples, Budh math etc.) are found at many places of this district, showing that there was a developed and organised society long long ago. Ancient history of the district is related with the Ramayana times when 'Koshal Naresh' lord Ram appointed his elder son 'Kush', the king of Kushawati- which is today's Kushinagar.

Before Mahabharat times, this area was related with Chakravorty Samrat 'Mahasudtsan' and his kingdom 'kushinagar' was well developed and prosperous. Nearby to his rajya border was the thick area woods 'Maha-van'. This area was under control of Maurya rulers, Gupta rulers and Bhar rulers, and then under control of Gharwal ruler 'Govind Chandra' from year -1114 to year- 1154. This area was under control of Avadh rulers or of Bihar Muslim rulers during Medieval times,is not very clear.

There was little control of oldest Delhi rulers - Sultan, Nizam or Khilji's on this region. There is no description of this area in east war/attack/invasion scripts by Muslim historians meaning by Muslim invaders would have seldom visited thick wood area of this region. Many places of this district played an important role in the modern history of this district. Important ones are Paina, Baikuntpur, Berhaj, Lar, Rudrapur, Hata, Kasia, Gauribazar, Kaptanganj, Udhopur, Tamkuhi, Basantpur Dhoosi etc.

Gandhiji addressed Deoria and Padrauna public meetings in 1920. Baba Raghav Das had started movement in April 1930 regarding 'NamakMovement'. In 1931, there were wide movement against government and landlords in this district. Many more people joined Congress as volunteers and marched several places of the district. Sh.Purushottam Das Tondon in 1931 and Rafi Ahmad Kidwai in 1935 visited different places of this district. During Quit India Movement, as much as 580 people were sent behind the bar for different duration. Deoria District came into existence at March 16' 1946 from Gorakhpur district.

The name Deoria is derived from 'Devaranya' or probably 'Devpuria' as believed. According to official gazettes, the district name 'deoria' is taken by its headquarter name 'Deoria' and the term deoria generally means a place where there are temples. Deoria name developed by a fossil(broken) Shiva Temple by the side of 'kurna river' in its northside. Kushinagar (Padrauna) district came into existence in 1994 ' MAY by separating north-east portion of Deoria district.


[3] The area now known as the Deoria District was once a part of the Kosala Kingdom - a prime centre of ancient Aryan culture surrounded by the Himalayas in the north, the Shyandika river in the south, the Panchala Kingdom in the west and the Magadh Kingdom in Bihar to the east. Apart from the many legends told about this area, archaeological remains, such as statues, coins, bricks, temples, and Budh Maths, have been discovered at many locations in this district, showing that there was a developed and organised society long ago.

Ancient history of the district is related with the Ramayana times when the Lord of Kosala, Ram, appointed his elder son Kusha the king of Kushwati, which is present-day Kushinagar. Before the Mahabharata era, this area had been related with Chakravorty Samrat Mahasudtsan Mall and his kingdom. Kushinagar was well developed and prosperous. Close to the border of his kingdom was the thick forested area called the Mahavan. This area was under the control of the Maurya rulers, the Gupta rulers, the Bihar rulers, and then the Garhwal ruler Govinda Chandra from 1114 AD until 1154 AD.


[4] The Deoria district came into existence on March 16, 1946, being separated from the Gorakhpur District. It is believed that the name Deoria is derived from Devaranya or possibly Devpuria. According to official gazetteers, the district was named "Deoria" after its headquarters in Deoria, and the term Deoria generally means a place where there are temples. The name Deoria probably developed because of the existence of important temples in the area. During Freedom struggle of India the district joined struggle under the leadership of Pandit Bibhuti Mani Tripathi of city by (ankur pandey) Dehrauli(Rudrapur). He provided leadership and invited Subhash Chandra Bose in district to inspire youths.
