Gahadvalas

After the downfall of Prathiharas, Kanauj was occupied by Gahadwalas or Rathors.

Chandradeva, who belonged to Rathore clan of Rajput warriors, established the Gahadavala dynasty.

He was the founder of the Gahadwala dynasty at Kannauj during 1080-1085 A.D after defeating Gopala.

Chandradeva imposed a tax called 'Turushkadanda'. He had the titles of Paramamahesvara, and Paramabhattaraka.

He proclaimed himself to be protector of the holy places like Kasi, Kosala, Kusika and Indrasthana. He conquered Panchala, Allahabad and Benares and took the title of Maharajadhiraja.

His grandson Govinda chandra was the greatest ruler among Gahadvalas. The other rulers of this dynasty were: Vijayachandra, Jayachandra, and Harischandra.

There was rivalry between Jayachandra and the Senas of Bengal on the one hand and Jayachandra and Prithviraj of Chauhan family on the other.

After destroying the Chauhans in the second Battle of Tarain, Muhammad of Ghur attacked Jayachandra between Chandwar and Itawa.

Battle of Chandwar took place between Muhammad Ghori and Jayachandra in 1194. In the battle Muhammad Ghori defeated and killed Jayachandra.
