Subarnapur District

1.7
Subarnapur District, also called Sonepur District or Sonapur District () is an administrative district of Odisha state in eastern India. The town of Sonepur is the district headquarters. Many loosely call the people of Sonepur region as Sonepuria.HistoryAccording to historians the Subarnapur district was known as Paschima Lanka or Western Lanka around the 10th-11th centuries. The evidence comes from a copper plate charter issued in the late 10th century by a Somavansi prince named Kumara Someswaradeva of Subarnapur district. The Prince had identified himself as the king of Paschima Lanka. It was further found that the Mahada copper plate grant of Kumara Someswaradeva was registered on the bank of river Chitrotpala (Mahanadi) and near to the province of Lanka. The presiding deity of Paschima Lanka was goddess Lankeswari.This district earned the name “Subarnapur” during the time of Somavamsi ruler. The district was established in 1993.EconomyIn 2006 the Ministry of Panchayati Raj named Subarnapur one of the country's 250 most backward districts (out of a total of 640). It is one of the 19 districts in Odisha currently receiving funds from the Backward Regions Grant Fund Programme (BRGF).
