Faridpur (Hindi:फरीदपुर, Bengali: ফরিদপুর জেলা) is a district in south-central Bangladesh. It is a part of the Dhaka Division.[1] The district is named after the municipality of Faridpur. Historically, the town was known as Fatehabad. It was also called Haveli Mahal Fatehabad.



It is bounded by the Padma River to its northeast.


Tej Ram Sharma [2] writes ....The regnal period of Vainyagupta witnessed a considerable decline in the power and prestige of the Imperial Guptas. The rise of the ruling dynasty consisting of Dharmaditya, Gopachandra and Samacharadeva in Central and South-West Bengal in the first half of the sixth Century A.D., possibly points to the extirpation of Gupta rule from Bengal excepting the bhukti (province) of Pundravardhana (North Bengal).[3]


विजयेन्द्र कुमार माथुर[4] ने लेख किया है .....फ़रीदपुर नगर, बंगाल (AS, p.597): गुप्तकाल में फ़रीदपुर नगर के परिवर्ती क्षेत्र का नाम वारक-मंडल था। फ़रीदपुर से गुप्तकालीन नरेश 'धर्मादित्य' तथा 'गोपचन्द्र' के तीन दानपट्ट-अभिलेख प्राप्त हुए हैं जिनसे तत्कालीन भूमि-हस्तांतरण तथा सामान्य शासन-व्यवस्था के बारे में सूचना मिलती है।
