also called  Shat Nagar  or  Bhatgarh 

      city, northeastern Madhya Pradesh state, central India. It is situated on the Tons River, a tributary of the Ganges (Ganga) (Ganges River). The city served as the headquarters of the British political agent in the historic region of Baghelkhand. Satna has a number of Jain temples and the Hindu Lakshminarayan Temple, as well as mosques and a church. The Company Bagh, Venkata, and Jaggannath Bagh are also notable. The city is a road and rail junction and an important distribution centre for agricultural products and cloth fabrics. The grain market in the city is one of the largest in the country. Industries include flour and oilseed milling, hand-loom weaving, and cement manufacturing; there is a large cement plant and a thermal power-generating station.

      Satna's surrounding region was part of the kingdom of Kosala and later became part of Vatsa territory. It developed initially as the market town of Bardodoh, a jagir (landholding) of the ruler of Rewa. The establishment of a railway line in the last quarter of the 19th century opened the way for people from Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Saurashtra, and Bundelkhand to settle there for commerce. At the nearby village of Bharhut, the remains of a 2nd-century-BCE Buddhist stupa (shrine) were discovered in 1873. Pop. (2001) city, 225,464.
