Description

This book, first published in 1917, recounts the life and times of the ruler of Mewar and some of his immediate predecessors. Based on old inscriptions, coins and records, it is an authoritative commentary on the multifaceted Maharana Kumbha.

Rajputana is celebrated as the land of outstanding warriors - of remarkable men who changed the destiny of their land by virtue of their bravery, strength of character and achievements. One such distinguished hero is Maharana Kumbhakaran, better known as Kumbha, who ascended the throne of Mewar in 1433.

Of Surya Vamsha lineage, Maharana Kumbha came from the glorious Guhilot clan, which ruled Mewar continuously for fourteen centuries. Apart from being an accomplished ruler and soldier, he was also an illustrious scholar. He was well-versed in the Vedas, wrote poems, dramas, treatises on music and commentaries on classic poetry.
