This tall building standing in the desert that you are seeing is where Sultan Mahmood Ghaznavi is buried. But the current doors of this tomb are not his original doors. It is a strange coincidence of history that Mahmood Ghazni’s tomb is in Ghazni. His death. Even after but this fight did not end. His son Anand Paul and then grandson Jay Pal Sani also fought wars many times with Mahmood Ghaznavi. But every time they were defeated. The biggest war among them was once again Peshawar. It was close. In one thousand eight, Anand Paul united all Indian states and started a war with Mahmood Ghaznavi.
At the request of Anand Pal, the army of the kings of Ajin, Gwaliyar, Kanuj, Delhi, Ajmer and Kalanger gathered. This army needed a lot of wealth and wealth. So for that, a lot of money was done. Even Hindu women melted their jewelry and army Sent gold and silver too. When both armies came face to face near Peshawar, Mahmood Ghaznavi dug a trench around his camp seeing the small number of his army. For forty days, both armies stood face to face, two armies stood face each other, arrow chala na sword, spears jumped And no bloodshed, no fighting.
But 41 days Ghaznavi Army’s six thousand shooters showered arrows on Indian Army. But the first attack was very harsh response. First the Indian Army forced the shooters to retreat. And then they crossed the trench and Ghaznavi army Broken but broken. Now the Indian Army’s flag was heavy. Maybe they would have won this war, but then an accident turned the veil of war. Instead, they turned the veil of India. The elephant on which Raja Anand Pal rode was the rain of arrows and He became out of control fearing the noise that was tearing his ears, and then he ran away wherever he raised his face.
When Raja’s elephant was seen leaving the field, the Indian army also started a fight. She also ran away and so the battle field was decided. Mahmood Ghaznavi had also killed this field of Peshawar. After this historic victory, Mahmood Ghaznavi killed the holy cities of Hindus. Nagar Kot, Thanseer and other cities were shaken and demoralized. He collected gold, silver idols and diamonds from temples and sent them to Ghazni. Two lakh people were also enslaved in Thanseer. Similarly, twenty in Qanoj. The game of destruction and destruction continued everyday.
It is said that once in Ghazni, the Sultan presented the gold throne, precious stones and ornaments brought from Punjab to the public. The faces of the onlookers were surprised. In addition to these areas, Mahmood Ghaznavi had also attacked Kashmir. Syed Muhammad Latif his It is written in the History Book of Punjab that Mahmood Ghaznavi looted all the great wealth of Kashmir and also forced its people to convert to Islam. In one thousand nineteen, the Sultan also gave details of his victories in India to Baghdad’s Caliph Al-Qadir Ballah Send in
The Khalifa gathered the Muslims of the city and told these achievements before them and celebrated in the city. Abbasi Khalifa also gave Mahmood Ghaznavi Amin-ul-Mulat, i.e. the trustworthy of the Islamic Nation and the Yemen-Dullah i.e. state straight-handed speeches, while the prize was royal. Sent the dress too. Two years after him, Mahmood Ghaznavi attacked Lahore and conquered him and changed it to his name. He named Lahore as Mahmoodpur. But apparently this name didn’t go much. Lahore remained Lahore. Yes his Famous Ghulam Ayaz, whom he made the ruler of Lahore, earned a lot of fame.
Ayaz’s grave is located in the Rang Mahal area of Lahore. This is the same Ayaz who built a fort in the city and the wall of the city. But remember that this fort and the wall are not the ones that exist today. Lahore of Sultan Mahmood Ghaznavi’s slave Ayaz I was at the same time when the Sufi elder Hazrat Data Ganj Bakhsh Ali Hajwari, who was eternally respected by the name of Hazrat Data, came to Lahore from Afghanistan. But the most important and memorable event of these is the one for which Sultan Mahmood Ghaznavi has been remembered by history. And that was the incident of the attack on Somnath temple. This is present-day India’s territory Kathiawar Gujarat and it’s coastal strip.
Somewhere here was the temple of the famous Somnath, which was attacked by Sultan Mahmood Ghaznavi in one thousand twenty four. The Sultan came out of Ghazni and went ahead destroying Ajmer. He would conquer all the memorable castles of the way, in two years, the gates of Somnath. It was in front. The doors of the temple were made of sandalwood. And their fame was spread like the temple. Somnath was a very sacred temple of Hindus. Its protector was Rajput Army
