Jyotirlinga-Somanatha Page1

When the power of Gurjaradesha and Karnataka had been broken around A. D. 940 and the extreme south had begun to build a great empire, the north-west frontier was practically undefended except for the Bahman Shahi kings of Kabul.

In the ninth century, the empire of the Caliphs had been broken up and among the soldiers of fortune who carved out kingdoms for themselves were the Samanaid princes. Alp-tigin (A. D. 933-963), a slave of one of the Samanaid rulers, forced his master to recognise him as an independent chieftain and established himself at Ghazni. From his mountain fortress, he began to spread terror in India.

Author : Shri Kanaiyalal Maneklal Munshi
