The beautiful district of Medinipur or West Medinipur was formed in 2002. It shares its borders with Balasore and Mayurbhanj in Orissa, districts of Purulia, Bankura, Hoogly and East Medinipur of West Bengal while the district of Singhbhum of Jharkhand falls in the western side. Midnapore is the district headquarters and an upcoming township. It was in 1783 AD under the British that the town of Medinapore was made the district headquarters of the Medinipur district.Known as the land of freedom fighters and pristine natural beauty, West Medinipur is a tribal rustic region with vibrant cultural and glorious heritage that traces its roots to the 13th century, when it was ruled by the tribal chieftain Medinikar, to whom the district has been named. He is also known to be the founded of the Medinikoch lexicon. The population largely consists of the culturally rich tribes of Santhals, Lodhas and Sabars.Today, West Medinipur has developed as a district of not only religious or historical importance but has been able to capture the tourism market in the state. With enhancement of tourist interests such as adventure sports activities, camping and Nature trips by the government there has been an increase in eco-tourism in the district. Good accommodation, security and the well known Bengali hospitality can be enjoyed to the fullest in the lap of Nature at Medinipur.
