Gaibandha District

Gaibandha is a district in Northern Bangladesh. It is a part of the Rangpur Division. Gaibandha subdivision was established in 1875. Gaibandha was known as Bhabanigonj; the name was changed from Bhabanigonj to Gaibandha in 1875. Gaibandha was established as a district in 15 February 1984. Gaibandha is the administrative largest urban centre of this district. There are two opinions about the name of Gaibandha; the most famous opinion is: around five thousand years ago, capital of Matsya Kingdom of King Birat was in Gobindaganj area. "Matsa" means. Fishes were abundant in his kingdom. According to Mahabharata, king Birat had 60,000 cows which were robbed by robbers. To protect his cattle from robbers, king Birat established a huge cattle-shed; the cattle were tied up alongside the rivers of this area. "Gai" means "cow" and "Bandha" means "to tie up". From this reason the area was called Gaibandha. In ancient times, this area was under water, filled by the silt of Teesta and Jamuna river over time; this statement can be found in the description of famous Chinese traveler Xuanzang and astronomical books of Ptolemy.

The flood of 1787 and the earthquake of 1898 made a major change in the landscape of this area which changed the flow of Teesta river, filled up a vast 15 miles area between Ghoraghat Upazila of Dinajpur and Tulshighat of Gaibandha and created small rivers like Kartoa and Katakhali. During the regime of British empire, Governor Warren Hastings established 24 thanas under Rangpur district collectorate in 1893. According to the 1873 report of E. G Glazier, collector of Rangpur, three of the thanas was established in today's Gaibandha. Two of them and Sadullapur were established in Idrakpur pargana and the other named as Bhabaniganj was established in the Patildaho pargana. During the Indian Rebellion of 1857, it was difficult to stop the activities of the rebels from Rangpur. So Bhabaniganj thana was established in the bank of Bramhaputra river for administrative reason. In 27 May 1858, Bhabaniganj was established as a mahakuma. At first there were only two thanas: Bhabaniganj. Gobindonganj was included in Bogra district 13 April 1821 but in 12 August 1871, it was included in Bhabaniganj.

Saghata, Palasbari and at last in 1870 Sundarganj was included in Bhabaniganj. In 1872, river corrosion started in the eastside of Bramhaputra river; as a result, the mahakuma was moved from its original place and re-established in Gaibandha, 12 km away from Bhabaniganj mahakuma. The sadar area was under control of three landlords; the patiladaho paragana was under control of Tagore family, said to be related to the Rabindranath Tagore family, the Baharbondo pargana was under landlord Manindro Nandi, ruled by Krishnanath's wife Maharani Swarnamoyee of Kasim Bazar and the Muktipur pargana was under control of landlord Lahiri family of Thanshinghopur. There was a collision between the landlords regarding the establishment of the mahakuma. At last by the initiatives of government officials, the administrative building and the court were established in Baharbondo pargana, donated by queen Swarnamoyee; when the Bhabaniganj mouza was beginning to destroy by river erosion, the name of this mahakuma was changed from Bhabanigonj to Gaibandha.
