Chapra History

Finding a story as engrossing and intriguing as Chapra's would be hard. In the country's ancient, medieval and contemporary times, the city has somehow managed to discover itself of excellent importance. It is thought that the name Chhapra is interpreted in two distinct ways. It implies "chah" (6) "para" (kos, a range unit) according to the first definition. Chhapra is believed to be known as 6 "kos" from the north, east and west of the rivers Ghagra and Ganga. Another is a profoundly philosophical interpretation. It comes from the need to "para" or "keep" the "chah," 6 poor qualities — Kama (lust), Krodha (anger), Lobh (greed), Moha (mental attachments), Ahankara (ubris), and Matsarya (envy, jealousy).
