Some interesting facts about Damoh town

A fountain once stood where the ghantaghar is now. Old name of the area is fuvvara.

Near the fountian at Station Road, there was a mile-stone mentioning "Damoh 1 mile". The old town of Damoh was at the foot of Gajananki toria.

The British establishment was located near Jatashankar hill and Naugaja toria. The major relics of the british period include the circuit house, British church now unused), and the British cemetary.

Before inependence the Gajananki toria was called Gaji Pir ki toria. Some 12th cent sculpture fragments from the toria are in the Damoh museum. There are many supposed tombs of Gaji Pir and Naugaja Pir throughout India.

There was once a Farsi inscription in the Kila (now museum) from Khilji period. Its current location is unknown.

There was once a Bhattarak seat in Damoh.

Damoh was also called "Damo".

Damoh is older than Sagar. Sagar was founded by Udan Singh in 1660. Present Jabalpur was selected as Maratha headquarters in 1781 (although nearby Garha was a capital of the Gond kingdom), thus Damoh is older than Jabalpur also.
