Motihari is the headquarters of East Champaran district (Purbi Champaran district) (Tirhut Division) - (Tirhut) in the Indian state of Bihar. It is one of the important towns of Bihar.HistoryIn 1866 Champaran district was formed with Motihari as its headquarters. On 1 December 1977, the Champaran district was divided into the districts of Purvi Champaran (East Champaran) and Pashchimi Champaran (West Champaran). Motihari and Bettiah became headquarters of East Champaran and West Champaran districts respectively.The municipality of Motihari was established in 1879. Though no authentic data is available, one of the oldest structures in Motihari appears to be the Briksha Sthan Math, a temple of the guardian deity of Motihari, dating back to 1805. During the British era, the town flourished and it became one of the important centers of North Bihar. Mahatma Gandhi came to Champaran to see the condition of farmers who were forced by the British to cultivate indigo in place of food grains. Later on, Mahatma Gandhi started his satyagraha aandolan for indigo farmers against English.GeographyMotihari is around 165 km northwest from Patna, the capital of Bihar, 45 km from Bettiah, and 72 km from Muzaffarpur. The city is close to Nepal. Birgunj, the second largest town of Nepal, is 55 km away. The closest villages are Madhubani ghat, Sirsha, and Pataura. The river Burhi Gandak flows nearby.
