    Bilaspur is situated on the banks of the River Arpa and is said was founded long back by a fisherwoman known as Bilasa, hence the city derives its name from the ancient fisherwoman and is known as Bilaspur. <br />Bilaspur was always ruled by the Haihai dynasty of Raipur till the Maratha rulers of Nagpur annexed the kingdom. However long may be the history of Bilaspur, it came to be known only after the Maratha rulers from Nagpur took over. They started building a fort, never got completed. <br />This small town, which went into obscurity years back, today has come up as the commercial capital of the state of Chhattisgarh. It is one of the most important railway junctions of Indian railway, joining the two distant metros of Mumbai and Kolkata (Howrah) through the railways.
