Rani Durgavati
Rani Durgavati
Description
Though for all practical purposes, Gondwana (a part of Madhya Pradesh of today), the thickly forested region over which Rani Durgavati ruled, was isolated from the rest of the country and sheltered from the storms that swept over it, it did not escape the cultural and social influences of the north. A number of sages and hermits made it their home, its very isolation making it an ideal place for meditation.

At one time, a number of Rajput chiefs encroached upon this territory of the Gonds and eventually brought the whole region under their control. For a while the, Gonds accepted their new rulers. But soon the desire for independence gripped them and gradually, about six hundred years ago, four independent Gond kingdoms were established. One of them was Garha-Mandala and its founder, Jadurai.

Rani Durgavati; the widow of Jadurai' s descendant, Dalpat Shah, is famous for her heroic resistance to the Mughal, Akbar's expansionist campaigns. How she bravely faced his vast armies with her small army of 500 men will ever be remembered and retold with pride for .generations to come.
