Sahibganj

Sahibganj (87.63E 25.24N) is a town and rail junction on the south bank of the Ganges River in eastern India, located about 190 miles (300 km) north northeast of Calcutta. The Ganges passes just north of a cluster of rugged hills here, and the fortress of Teliagarhi was established here by 645 C.E.to command the river.

The district had an unusually large European population, which may account for its name "place of masters" but became a center of the "Quit India" movement of August 1942 organized by the Indian National Congress.
