But owing to archeological challenges Domah’s Stone Age era history largely remains a mystery. Domah’s history truly sprang to life during ancient and medieval era. Many prominent empires rose and crumbled during these eventful eras. Chedi or Kalachuri kingdom being the foremost kingdom from ancient era, while Gond Dynasty and Mughal Empire being the most prominent empires from medieval era. Many great historical figures also rose from these prominent empires, but none achieved as much glory as Rani Durgawati, one of the foremost queens of Gond Empire. She bravely achieved martyrdom while fighting against rampaging armies of Mughals. Read More.............................

Healthcare Services in DamohHealthcare services in Damoh still has lot of improvement to do, but coming up of decent number of private hospitals and clinics during last few years has certainly raised the bar of healthcare services. Besides, good presence of specialist doctors and adequate presence of pathological labs have also helped in improving quality of healthcare services. The only drawback, which is actually a major drawback, is that all the major improvement in healthcare services has occurred in and around headquarter city of Damoh. What this means is that most of the villages and towns residing in the interior of the district still have very limited access to quality healthcare services.
