Jessore is one of the districts that once comprised Samataṭa.—From Samataṭa, the Chinese traveller Hiuen Tsang journeyed towards the West for over 900 li and reached Tanmolihti, or Tāmralipta, the modern Tamluk in the Midnāpur district. Samataṭa, therefore, must have been the South-eastern part of the Bengal presidency corresponding to the Dacca, Faridpur, Backerganj, Jessore and Khulna districts.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
