Jyotirlinga-Somanatha Page1

In A.D. 942, Mularaja, the son of Raji and Liladevi, driven from his ancestral kingdom, captured Anahilavada Patan and acquired Sarasvatamandala, a small principality in the valley of the Sarasvati.1 Hemachandra described him as the architect of Gujarat.

Mularaja is reported by Hema chandra to have said:

"Graharipu is unjust. He harasses the pilgrims and kills the Brahmanas. How can I make friends with such a wicked man? No one can even move freely in Saurashtra. He has destroyed the sacred Prabhasa. He has raided peaceful towns. The son of a mlechchha woman, he has been hunting  deer on the Girnar. Go and tell him to come out and fight me."2

1 The Glory that was Gurjaradesha, Pt. III, p. 108. 2 DV. IV 20ff.

Author : Shri Kanaiyalal Maneklal Munshi
