The Chauhan dynasty ruled Shakambari region in 11th century, it was a politic ally strong dynasty known for its policies. The great Rajputs were the kings of Chauhan dynasty known for their bravery and loyalty. He originally belonged to Agnivanshi Clan (descendants of the Fire God).The name of the rulers of Chauhanas of Shakambhari and their contribution is discussed below:
After Vigraha Raja, two rulers Prithviraj II and Somesvara ruled Chauhan dynasty. They had thoughtless reign. Someshvara was followed by his son Prithvira III
Prithviraj Chauhan III
The Chauhan dynasty after Prithviraj Chauhan
Almost all the brave soldiers were killed during the second war of Tarain and the moral of the Rajput’s was lost. There was no one to take the charge. Hari raja, brother of Prithviraj became ruler of Ajmer and accepted hostility of Aibek. The Chauhan dynasty was then shifted to Ranthambhor. In 1302 AD Ala-ud-din- Khilji captured Ranthambhore and the Chauhan dynasty came to its end.
Rajput’s are regarded as the brave and courageous fighters in the history of India. The Rajputs are known for their pride, at that time they were strong enough to think of themselves as self-sufficient rulers. Rajputs were too arrogant to take anyone’s help and they never helped anyone. The Chauhan Dynasty of Shakambri (modern Sambhar-Rajasthan) had many strong successors but still it lost its existence, as it took the wrong decision of refusing help from others at the time of Battle of Tarain. The Chauhans lost their treasury, time and soldiers in the battle and its successors after the battle were short of resources which gradually made the dynasty to decline. One of the main rulers was Prithviraj Chauhan; his court poet was Chanbardai who composed ‘Prithviraj Raso’. We should always look up to history to learn, Chauhans are a great example to take lessons from their mistakes and powers.
