Origin of District Name
The District that forms a part of Faizabad Division is named after its headquarters town Bela Pratabgarh, commonly known as Pratapgarh. Pratap Singh, a raja of the locality who flourished between 1628–1682, fixed his headquarters at Rampur near old town of Aror. There he built a garh (fort) and called it Pratabgarh after his own name. Subsequently the locality around the fort came to be known as Pratapgarh. When the district was constituted in 1858 its headquarters was established at Bela which came to be known as Bela Pratapgarh, the name Bela presumably being derived from the temple of Bela Bhawani on the bank of river Sai. Bela devi mandir is also very famous in the city, it is a very renowned religious place of the district.
