Among the numerous towns, which dot the political topography of Chhattisgarh, Mowa is one of the quaint, little towns. It is a census town in the district of Raipur, which, incidentally is the namesake of the capital of the state.

Chhattisgarh is a relatively young state in the political history of India. It was earlier a part of Madhya Pradesh, which literally meant 'Central region'. After the separation, the towns like these came into prominence. When the census of India took place in 2001, the population of Mowa was 13,697. The male to female population ratio was approximately 53:47. Even though it rests in proximity to the tribal regions of the state, the average literacy rate of Mowa is 66%, which is noticeably higher than the national average, which is 59.5%. Among the male population, the literacy rate is 74% and among the females it is 57%.

The picture perfect town of Mowa is not as advanced as Raipur or Bilaspur as far as infrastructure in concerned, but there is a traditional charm and alluring quality about it. It is a kind of town, which is off the beaten track. It is also an appealing place for tourists and city slickers weary of the humdrum of life in a concrete jungle. The town is devoid of the hustle and bustle of the bigger cities and has a certain old world charm to it.
