Jai Singh - Udaipur



Jai Singh (5 December 1653 – 23 September 1698), was the Maharana of Mewar Kingdom, ruling from 1680 to 1698. He was a son of Mahanara Raj Singh I. Jai Singh fought a series of battles against Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb. In 1680–81, he sent his noble Dayaldas in Malwa. Dayaldas occupied Dhar and Mandu. He looted those cities and fought a series of battles against Mughal army. Finally, Aurangzeb and the Rana signed a peace treaty, and Aurangzeb turned his attention to the Rathores of Marwar and the Marathas in the Deccan. He married Dayawati Bai (1650–1683), a Kachhawa princess of Amber, who died in childbirth. He built Dhebar lake, Udaipur in 1685. On the last attack which was made by Aurangzeb with his three sons and an army of number more than 5 times than that of Maharana's, Maharana Jai Singh deployed a tactic under which he with his subjects (includin villagers) took shelter under different dens after emptying all food supplies and water of well and taking it with them. When Aurangzeb attacked the villages he found nothing to be plundered. Mughal Library

Very good information.


The Mughal Images immediately took a much greater interest in realistic portraiture than was typical of Persian miniatures. Animals and plants were the main subject of many miniatures for albums and were more realistically depicted. To upload your images click here.
