Deoria (Hindi: देवरिया Urdu: دیوریا) is a town in the state of Uttar Pradesh, India. It is one of 5 tehsils of Deoria district. The name of the Railway Station is Deoria Sadar(Hindi: देवरिया सदर).



Deoria is located 50 km to south-east of Gorakhpur.


According to 2001 census Deoria had 104222 inhabitants (54.737 men, 49.485 women).[1]



The area now known as the Deoria District was once a part of the Kosala Kingdom - a prime centre of ancient Aryan culture surrounded by the Himalayas in the north, the Shyandika river in the south, the Panchala Kingdom in the west and the Magadh Kingdom in Bihar to the east. Apart from the many legends told about this area, archaeological remains, such as statues, coins, bricks, temples, and Budh Maths, have been discovered at many locations in this district, showing that there was a developed and organised society long ago.

Ancient history of the district is related with the Ramayana times when the Lord of Kosala, Ram, appointed his elder son Kusa the king of Kushwati, which is present-day Kushinagar. Before the Mahābhārat era, this area had been related with Chakravorty Samrat Mahasudtsan Mall and his kingdom. Kushinagar was well developed and prosperous. Close to the border of his kingdom was the thick forested area called the Mahavan. This area was under the control of the Maurya rulers, the Gupta rulers, the Bihar rulers, and then the Garhwal ruler Govinda Chandra from 1114 AD until 1154 AD.


The Deoria District came into existence on March 16, 1946, being separated from the Gorakhpur District. It is believed that the name Deoria is derived from Devaranya or possibly Devpuria. According to official gazetteers, the district was named "Deoria" after its headquarters in Deoria, and the term Deoria generally means a place where there are temples. The name Deoria probably developed because of the existence of important temples to Shiva, called Somnath Temple, and the goddess Durga, called Deorahi Temple on the northern bank of the Kurna river.

The Kushinagar (Padrauna) district was formed in May 1994 by separating the north-east portion of the Deoria District.
