History
Mahasthangarh (pundranagara), located 10 km to the north of Bogra town, was the capital of pundravardhana. During the 4th to 8th century BC this region was ruled by various dynasties. From the middle of 8th century it went under Pala rule that continued till 12th century. Sena King vijayasena conquered the region defeating the last Pala King madanpala. Bogra came under the Muslim rule after bakhtiyar khalji conquered Nadia. In 1281-1290 AD, Sultan Nasiruddin Bagra Khan, the second son of the emperor of Delhi Sultan ghiyasuddin balban became the ruler of Bengal. Bogra was named after him. The anti British Fakir-Sannyasi movement spread over Bogra region since the early British rule. The leader of the fakirs majnu shah had direct encounters with the British. The Indigo Rebellion spread over Bogra in mid 19th century.
