History And Archeology Of Nagpur
Haihaya King

Mr. Hira Lal, Assistant Gazetteer Superintendent, has recently deciphered an inscription at Ramtek, which goes far to show that Nagpur was included in the territories of the Haihaya rajput dynasty of Chhattisgarh. His account of it is reproduced. The inscription is a long one of about 80 lines and is engraved in beautiful characters on a coating of black cement fixed on to a stone and having itself the appearance of a stone surface. The Haihayas appear to have used this cement for their inscriptions as a second one engraved in it is to be found at Seorinarayan. The inscription consists for the most part of a description of the sacred places of the locality, and the commencement, which gives the genealogy of the kings, is much mutilated, The names of two kings, Simhana and Kamchandra, together with the word Yadava Vansa can however be read. Now a stone inscription of one Brahmadeva of the Raipur branch of the Haihayas dated in 1402 A.D. states that Brahmadeva’s father was Ramchandra, whose father was Simhana. The same genealogy is given in another inscription of the same king dated in 1413, and there is thus little doubt that the kings of the Ramtek inscription were the ancestors of brahmadeva and that the Haihaya armies had penetrated to Ramtek in the 14th century. We know also that the chiefs of Lanji and Bhandara paid tribute to the Ratanpur branch of the Haihaya kings in 1114 A.D. and even in the 7th century Chanda is believed to have been included in the kingdom of Mahakosala. the name by which their territories were known.
