Correct Answer - Option 4 : Guna

The correct answer is Guna.

  • Guna was a part of the erstwhile Gwalior State during the pre-independence period.
    • It was not considered expedient to locate the district headquarters at Guna, because of its being the British Cantonment.
    • The old name of the district was Issagarh.

  • The original name of Isagarh was "Ondila" or "Unda" until 1808 when Durjan Lal Khichi conquered it from the Ahirs and renamed it "Bahadurgarh".
    • Three years later, in 1811, Jean Baptiste Filose captured it and renamed it Isagarh, meaning "the fort of Jesus".
    • It has an average elevation of 489 metres.
