The District of Satna is situated between latituedes 23" 58' and 25"12' north and longitute 80"21' and 81"23' east in mid northern part of Rewa Commissioner's Division in Madhya Pradesh state of India. The districts takes its name from Satna, the head quarters town, which in its turn takes it from Satna Rewa which flows near the town. In the north the district boundary marches with that of Banda District of Uttar Pradesh state. Eastern Bombay of the district runs with the Teonther, Sirmour and Huzur tehsils of Rewa district and a very small questions of the Gopadbanas tehsil of Sidhi District. The entire western boundary of the district is made by Panna district while the southern boundary abuts on the Murwara tehsil of Jabalpur district in the west and Bandhogarh tehsil of Umaria district and Beohari Tehsils of Shahdol district on the east. Satna district lies on Vindhyan Plateau, which has an average altitude of 1000' to 11000'. The southern portion of Nagod Tehsil below 24"30' north latitude is a hilly country consisting of a tangled mass of low hills, and enclosing considerable stretches of level ground. The height of the plateau enclosed by these hills is from 1700' to 1800' generally but occasionally, some of the hills in the south of the tahsil rise to more than 800 feet in height above the plateau. The general slope of the country of the tehsil is towards the east, inclined towards the north in the centre of the tehsil. Satna, the important river of the tehsil rises from the Panna hills and flows east as long as it is in Nagod tehsil. Near village Kathkone in Nagod Tehsil it is joined by the Amran river, and from this point of junction, it bends towards the south, making the boundary of Nagod and Raghuraj Nagar tehsils, till it meets the Tons river a few miles to the south-east of Satna town. Barua is another river of some importance in the tehsil, which rises from the hills in the south of the tehsil and flowing almost due west joins the Tons a few miles below village Karaia, at the border of Maihar and Nagod tehsils. Amarpatan Tehsil is bounded on the south by the Son river. The Kaimur ridge, with its scarp side to the south, rises suddenly like a wall about eight miles to the north of Son river, going towards the east, with slight northerly inclination, almost parallel to the Son river. North of Ram Nagar, an isolated small hill rises to 2,354'. Rest of Amarpatan tehsil is again an alluvial plain draned by the Behar river, which flows more or less parallel to the Mirzapur road, in a north-easternly direction. The south western Maihar tehsil consists mainly of sandstones of Bhander series, concealed in great part by alluvium. Beyond 80"44' east longitude the Kaumur ridge runs through the heart of the broader eastern portion of the tehsil dividing the basin of the Mahanadi from that of the Tons. The river Tons, which drains the tehsil runs between the railway line and the Kaumur and is joined by numerous small nullahs which run along the northern slopes of the Kaimur. The south eastern extremity of Maihar tehsil is bound by river Mahanadi, which marches with the boundary of Maihar tehsil first with Murwara tehsil of Jabalpur district and then with Beohari tehsil of Shahdol district. Raghuraj Nagar tehsil consists in the south of an alluvial plain watered by the Tons and its tributaries the Satna, and the Simrawal from the north-west and the Magardha and Nar from the south. The Panna hills cross the narrowest portion of the tehsil in a west-east direction slightly inclined to the north and separate the valley of the Paisuni, in part ravinous, from the plateau to the south. Further north is Vindhyachal range running from west to east, almost parallet to the Panna hills, through the former sanad states of Baraundha, Patharkachhar and the Chaube jagirs.
