Boudh (बौध) is a town and district in the state of Odisha, India.


It is the district headquarters of Boudh district. It is located on the bank of Mahanadi River, the largest river of the state of Odisha.




Baudh State, also known as Boudh State, was one of the princely states of India during the period of the British Raj. It was recognized as a state in 1874[1] and had its capital in Boudh town. Its last ruler signed the accession to the Indian Union on 1 January 1948. The formerly princely state's territory is now within Boudh District.

Baudh was one among the 26 Feudatory States of Orissa. According to legend the state originated in a preexisting state that had been founded centuries before by a Brahmin who adopted as successor a nephew of the Raja of Keonjhar.[2]

बौध (उड़ीसा)

बौध (उड़ीसा) (AS, p.649) : तांत्रिक बौद्ध धर्म के अवशेष यहां के खंडहरों से प्राप्त हुए हैं (देखे मेहताब- ए हिस्ट्री ऑफ़ उड़ीसा, पृ. 155). इसके अतिरिक्त शिव एवं विष्णु के मंदिरों के साथ-साथ एक ही स्थान पर होने से मध्यकालीन संस्कृति में इन दोनों संप्रदायों की एकता प्रकट होती है. [3]
