Pal Lahara (Odia: ପାଳଲହଡ଼ା ଗଡ଼ଜାତ ରାଜ୍ୟ, was a princely state in what is today India during the British Raj. It had its capital at Pal Lahara.[1]

The state had an area of 452 square miles (1,170 km2) and a population of 34,130 in 1892. In 1947 it was merged into independent India, becoming Dhenkanal District of Orissa State (now Odisha) in 1948.

History[edit]

According to tradition, the first ruler was a Suryavanshi Rajput of Dharanagar named Santosh Pal. While returning from a pilgrimage to Puri he crossed this territory and made peace between two local tribal groups. As a result, Santosh Pal was elected as ruler by the Sabara people, one of the tribes involved in the conflict.[2]

Rulers[edit]

The rulers of the Pal Lahara princely state claimed to be descendants of Raja Bhoj of Dhar, from the ancient Rajput Paramara dynasty.[3]
