About Kishanganj

Kishanganj district is among the thirty-eight districts in Bihar, India, with its administrative center in Kishanganj town. It is also part of the Purnia division, known as Seemanchal.


Kishanganj district, originally a part of Purnia district, belongs to the Mithila region. This region became significant when Indo-Aryan people settled there and formed the Mithila Kingdom, also known as the Kingdom of the Videhas. This kingdom was governed by the Videhas, a tribe of Indo-Aryan people.

In the late Vedic period, around 1100-500 BCE, the Kingdom of the Videhas emerged as a key political and cultural hub in South Asia, alongside regions like Kuru and Pañcāla. The rulers of this kingdom were known as Janakas. The Mithila Kingdom, part of this region, was later included in the Vajjika League, with its capital in Vaishali, also located in Mithila.
