also spelled  Rewah  or  Riwa 

      city, northeastern Madhya Pradesh state, central India. The former Rewa princely state was founded about 1400 by Baghel Rajputs (warrior caste). The city was chosen as the capital of the state in 1597 and also served as capital of the British Baghelkhand Agency (1871–1931) and of Vindhya Pradesh state (1948–56). Rewa entered into treaty agreements with the British in 1812. The city is connected by road with other cities and is a trade centre for grain, building stone, and timber. Cloth weaving and wood carving are important cottage industries. The city is the seat of Awadesh Pratap Singh University (established 1968), with several affiliated colleges, including a medical school, in the town.

      Rewa is situated on a wide alluvial plain that is part of the great Vindhyan plateau and is watered by the Tons River and its tributaries. Rice, wheat, oilseeds, millet, and corn (maize) are the major crops in the area, a significant portion of which is forested, yielding valuable timber and lac (the resin from which shellac is made). Pop. (2001) city, 183,274.
