Munger has a long history. The history of India began with the Vedas, Quran, and epics. Lord Mahavir and Gautam both passed through Munger and stayed at Munger until they reached Varanasi. The second and most important ruler of Palla, Dharmpal, made Munger his capital, and another ruler of Palla issued the Munger inscription (commonly known as Munger's plate). It is said that Munger was founded by Guptas (4th century AD). In 1763, Mīr Qasīm of Nawab, Bangladesh, made Munger the capital and built an arsenal and several palaces. The country's political awakening after World War I also stimulated the nationalist movement in the Munger district. In the 19th and early 20th centuries, Munger became the center of different reform movements such as Brahmo Samaj, Arya Samaj, Theosophical Society.
