Garpanchkot is locally known as Panchet village. It is one of the oldest villages of Purulia district. Raja Damodar Sekhar had established his kingdom here in early 90AD. This village was mostly run by the Sardars of Jhalda who had expanded their kingdom from another extreme east part of the state. The British called this place Rajchakla Panchkot.
