One has to go back centuries ago to discuss the origin of the name Rajshahi. The ancient name of the city was Mahakala Garh. Later it was converted to Rampur-Boalia. There is no clear explanation of how the name Rajshahi originated from Rampur-Boalia. There is no mention of a town or place named Rajshahi in the history of the early period of the British period. Many believe that this town was once ruled by many Hindus, Muslims, kings, sultans and zamindars.
According to the historical blockman (Bolch Mann), the name of Rajshahi originated from the time of the assimilation of King Ganesh Kittark, the landlord of Vaturia in this district in the Muslim sultanate of Gaur in the 5th century AD. The combination of the words Hindu Raj and Persian Shahi originated in mixed words. But Beveridge, objecting to the opinion of Blockman, said that the name was more or less than Rajshahi and its position was far from the Bhaturiya pargana of King Ganesh.
When the name originated during King Ganesha, it must have been mentioned in the list of collection of rent made by Todarmal or in the book Ain-i-Akbari of Abul Fazl. According to WW Hunter, the king of Natore was known as Rajshahi, the zamindari of Ramjivan, and the name was adopted by the English for this district. General Chat Chat Lounge Many people do not consider these explanations to be a true history. However, the historical fact is that from the Nawabi period of Bengal in 821, Nawab Musharkkuli Khan divided the whole of Bangladesh into 3 (thirteen) chaklas for the benefit of revenue collection. In which a large area called ‘Charula Rajshahi’ is assigned. In this flowing Padma widow ‘Rajshahi Chakla’ he called Rajshahi his own Chakla, with the present Rajshahi in the north and Murshidabad on the south.
At first, Uday Narayan used to collect revenue from the entire Chakla. He was a very loving man of Murshid Quli. For which the Nawab conferred upon him the title of king. South of Chakla Rajshahi, a vast area which was situated in the whole of Rajshahi and Pabna, was settled in the 5th by Nawab Murshid Quli Khan Natore’s Ramjivan. This zamindari later came under the rule of Bhabani, Queen of Natore and spread over many territories. When Ramjivan first died in the reign of Natore 4, his adopted son Ramkant became king. After Ramakanta’s death in 9, his wife Bhabani Devi inherited Rani Bhabani. According to many, Nawab Murshid Quli Khan was named Rajshahi in love with the first king Uday Narayan. But according to the historian Akshay Kumar Maitreya, the name given by Rani Bhavani is Rajshahi. However, Mr. Grant writes that the land was named Rajshahi by the queen of Bhabani, and the name of Rajshahi was mentioned during the settlement of this Chakla.
