The district of Deogarh, as a distinct administrative entity, was carved out of the erstwhile larger Sambalpur district of Odisha on the 1st of January 1994. The District has a rich cultural tradition. This district has been gifted in the form of mountains, springs, falls, forests, clean atmosphere and rich collection of flora and fauna.There are several myths, legends, apocryphal tales, and folklores about the derivation of the name Bamanda. One legend being, a couple named “Bama” (or Baha) and “Manda” ruled over this tract. A conjunction of their names contributes to the name Bahamanda or Bamanda for the erstwhile princely state, which in colloquial usage is pronounced as Bamra. Another mythical version is that Lord Ramachandra upon his banishment from Ayodhya in fulfilment of his father‟s vow passed through this land and set his left foot on the soil of this territory first. “Bama” in Sanskrit is left and “Mada” is foot. Till 11th century, Brahmani River was known as “SankhaJyotiNadi” according to some Copper inscription found in this area. For this reason, first king of Ganga dynasty Saraju Deb selected Counch (Shanka) as the royal emblem of his dynasty and named the land as “SankhaJyotiMandal “, which again was became reknowned as “Bamanda” .During merger of Bamanda state with Odisha, the sub-division formed out of a larger portion of the former princely state came to be known as Deogarh, the capital town of Bamanda. Spelling of the place name Deogarh that the British used in their records continued as in the case of other place names. That very name continued even after the former sub-division of Sambalpur was accorded the status of a district in 1994.Sumitra Ambulance Service ( )  provides services on this district for every blocks,tahasils and as well as every villages with gram panchayatslong days atreasonable cost.
