About The DistrictThe Godda district is situated in the North East of Jharkhand State. Godda is 350 Kms away from Ranchi. It is surrounded by Sahebganj & Pakur district in the East, Bhagalpur district of Bihar State in North & West and Dumka district in the South. It is situated between 240.47' to 250.23' Northern Latitude and between 870.08' to 870.48' Eastern Longitude. Godda district came into existence on 25th May 1983, after being carved out from the district of Santhal Pergana. Since 1855, Godda has been a sub-division of Santhal Pargana. Historically no systematic document about the district seems to be available. Still a number of stone weapons and tools such as axes, hammers, arrow-leads or agricultural implements found in the Santhal Pargana, obviously confirmed the fact that like other parts of the world this region too had experienced the living of stone age and certainly would have been the inhabitants of this region during early Vedic age .
