Hindol State was one of the princely states of India during the period of the British Raj. Its former territory is now part of Dhenkanal district. The state's former capital was the town of Hindol, Odisha. Until 1947, it was not part of British India but was subject to the suzerainty of the British crown, under the Orissa States Agency.

History[edit]

The state of Hindol was founded in 1554 by two brothers named Lakshman Mahratta and Bharat Mahratta belonging to the family of the Khimedi Raja of Ganjam, which also ruled over areas in the Madras region.[1] After the East India Company occupied Orissa in September–October 1803 treaties were signed with estates of the region, including Hindol.

After the independence of India in 1947 Hindol merged into Republic of India on 1 January 1948.[2] Thereafter in 1948, once the all princely states including Dhenkanal, Talcher, Athmallik, Pal Lahara and Hindol formally merged with the province of Orissa, the present Dhenkanal district was created.[3]

Rulers[edit]

The rulers of Hindol were of Rajput origin and had the title of Raja.[4][5]
