Chhatarpur is a city in Madhya Pradesh state of India. It is the administrative headquarters of Chhatarpur district. Area of city is 2,927 square kilometers, population is of 56,139.
Chhatarpur is named after the Bundela Rajput leader Chhatrasal, the founder of Bundelkhand independence, and contains his cenotaph. The state was ruled by his descendants until 1785. At that time the Ponwar clan of Rajputs took control of Chhatarpur. The state was guaranteed to Kunwar Suni Singh Ponwar in 1806 by the British Raj. In 1854 Chhatarpur would have lapsed to the British government for want of direct heirs under the doctrine of lapse, but was conferred on Jagat Raj as a special act of grace.
The Ponwar rajas ruled a princely state with an area of 1118 square miles, and population of 156,139 in 1901, which was part of the Bundelkhand agency of Central India. In 1901 the town of Chhatarpur had a population of 10,029, manufactures of paper and coarse cutlery, and a high school. The state also contained the British cantonment of Nowgong.  After the independence of India in 1947, the rajas of Chhatarpur acceded to India, and Chhatarpur, together with the rest of Bundelkhand Agency, became part of the Indian state of Vindhya Pradesh. Vindhya Pradesh was merged into Madhya Pradesh state in 1956.

It can also be considered as the preeminent, historical and potential tourism destination that enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers to become one of the most visited places.
