Madanpur (मदनपुर) is a village in Sagar Distrct in Madhya Pradesh. Village was founded by Chandel King Madan Varma in 12th century. Many Inscriptions of Bundela rulers have been obtained from here. 
Jinapala's Kharataragachchhapaṭṭavalī tells us that in V. 1239 (1182 AD) Prithviraja III started his digvijaya and on his conquest of all quarters had pitched his first camp at Narayana. He marched against Jejakabhukti, which according to Madanpur (Bundelkhand) Inscriptions, "was laid waste in V.1239 by Prithviraja III, the son of Someshvara and the grandson of Arnoraja".
