Jat clans


Dahal clan now found in Multan district, had given its name to the Berar area of Madhya Pradesh in medieval times when that area was called Dahal Desa. Piawan Inscriptions of 789 K.S. (A.D. 1038) mentions Sri Dhahalan iti.[2] 'Kitabul-Hind of Beruni mentions a Dahala with its capital of Tripuri as one of the countries of India.[3][4]

Damoh Stone Inscription of Vijayasimha

(Deposited in the Nagpur Museum)

This record is in Rajasthani and Sanskrit, the one being a free translation of the other. It recites that one Vijayapala was born in the Visvamitra gotra. He conquered a great hero named Kāī. His son was Bhuvanapala, whose son Harsharaja is stated to have defeated the kings of Kalanjara, Dahali (Dāhal), Gurjara and the Deccan, Harsharaja's son was Vijayasimha, a virtuous man devoted to Bhambhukadeva. He is said to have fought at Chittor, conquered the Delhi armies, scattered the Deccan forces close to Mahāgadh, and driven out the Gurjaras.

The absence of any regal title indicates that the persons named in the record were perhaps commanders of armies who overran a number of countries, including Dahala, the Kalachuris' kingdom, which included Damoh. They left no trace of their raid except this inscription, the language of which points to their home in Rajasthan.

It is possible that they may have been related to the Guhila Princes of Mevad. In that dynasty there was one Vijayasimha who married Syamaladevi, daughter of Udayaditya of Malava, by whom he had a daughter Alhanadevi who married Gayakarna of Dahala. Unfortunately the stone is broken, so resulting in loss of date if at all it were there!.
