The ancient name of Panna was Padmawati-Puri, mentioned in Vishnu Puran and Bhavishya Puran. In the 41st sarg of Valmiki Ramayan it is described as Kilkila-Khand by Sugriv and Shrimad Bhagwat calls it Kilkila Pradesh. According to local beliefs, it was the capital of Raja Dadhichi and also of Raja Padmavat during satyug. During the Ramayan period the Panna region seems to have been included in the great Dandkaranya. The district was the part of the vast empires of Mauryas, Shungas and Imperial Guptas. Swami Pran Nathji told Raja Chhatrasal Bundela, a great medieval warrior regarding Diamond mines of Panna and thus strengthened his financial position. He also persuaded Chhatrasal to make Panna his capital and arranged his coronation there. Panna district of today has been carved mainly out of former princely states of Panna and Ajaigarh. From the middle of the 10th century AD to the second half of the 13th century, the Chandellas kingdom included Khajuraho, Kalingar and Ajaigarh. When the Bundelas came to power in the 17th century , the area came to be known as Bundelkhand. !!Politics __Vidhan Sabha (Legislative Assembly) constituencies and their areas after delimitation order of 2008__ 58 ((Pawai Vidhan Sabha Constituency)) - 1).
