Durg is a district in Chhattisgarh. Until year 2000 it was part of Madhya Pradesh. The district is home to two important religious sites- the ‘Ganga Maiyat Jhalmala’ for Hindus, Jain shrine of ‘UwasaggaharamParshwaTeerth’ that attracts pilgrims from all over India.

History:

In ancient times, Durg was part of 'Dakshina' or 'Southern Kosala'. However, the first specific reference with regard to the word ‘Durg’ comes around the 8th century A.D. through two stone inscriptions; which were found in Durg. The First inscription mentions the name of king Shiva Deva. The second inscription associates the name of Sivapura (the capital city of Shivadeva) with that of Shiva Durga, indicating that during Shivadeva's reign, the town and the fort were separate. The present name "Durg" is evidently a contraction of the old Shivadurga, which he built. In 1906, Durg was created as a separate district.
