The Battle of Banas (1300) fought between the Khalji commanders Ulugh Khan and Nusrat Khan and Chahamana generals Bhimasimha and Dharmasimha near the bank of River Banas, where Ulugh Khan was defeated by Chahamanas.[1][2][3]


The Sultan of Delhi, Alauddin Khalji sent his brother Ulugh Khan and Nusrat Khan to invade the territories of Chahamanas during the reign of Hammiradeva. Ulugh Khan encamped near Banas started burning and destroying villages. Hammiradeva was involved in a religional rite Muniverata,[4] so he sent his generals Bhimasimha and Dharmasimha to deal with Ulugh Khan.[3][5]


Bhimasimha and Dharmasimha gained decisive victory over the Muslim army at the bank of river Banas, where a large number of Muslims were killed.[1][4]


Ulugh Khan after facing a defeat at Banas, started following Bhimasimha with his small band of soldiers secretly till Hindavat pass and assassinated Bhimasimha and returned to Delhi.[6]

When the armies, of Islam reached the river ‘Varnansa’ (Banas), they found it difficult to march through the pass leading to Hammira’s territory. Ulugh Khan, therefore, encamped therefor some days and burnt and destroyed the villages of its iieibhbourhood. When the misdeeds of the Muslim army were brought to Ranthambhor, Hammira was then engaged in religious rites, for he has not yet completed this ‘Muniverata.‘2 That Hammira at the moment was busy in the performance of some religious rites has also been stated in the Surjana Charita.® So Hammira could not personally take the field and instead sent two of his generals, Bhimasimha and Dharmasiraha, to drive away the invaders. They gained a decisive victory over the Muslim host near the river and large number of the Muslim soldiers were killed in action. Search this book on
