Man Singh Tomar

Raja Man Singh Tomar was the most illustrious of the Tomar rulers of Gwalior who ascended the throne in 1486 A.D. Mansingh Tomar was born to Raja Kalyanmall Tomar of Gwalior. He was a great ruler and ruled for over 30 years. In his years the Tomar were sometime at feud with and sometimes allies with the sultans of Delhi. He married Gujari rani Mrignayani. He was a great warrior and great patron of Music. One of the nine gems of his court was Tansen. Raja Man Singh was one of the greatest patrons of Arts and Music.

Man Singh was the greatest of the Rajput Tomar rulers, who ascended the throne in 1486. He also repelled an attack on the fort by Sikandar Lodi Delhi. He sued for peace in lieu of 80 Lakh rupees and a number of Elephants and valuable jewels. Sikandar Lodhi wanted another attack but every time he was either sued for peace and never confronted. Things changed at his death and in 1516, Ibrahim Lodhi laid siege on the fort. Man Singh died while the siege was on but his son held on to the fort for one year before surrendering.

The 15th century Gujari Mahal is a monument of love by Raja Man Singh Tomar for his Gujari queen, Mrignayani. After he had wooed and won her, Mrignayani demanded for a separate palace with a constant water supply from the River Rai. The outer structure of the Gujari Mahal has survived in an almost total state of preservation, the interior has been now converted into an archaeological Museum.
Within Gwalior Fort, also built by Raja Mansingh Tomar, is the Man Mandir Palace, built between 1486 and 1517. The tiles that once adorned its exterior have not survived, but at the entrance, traces of these still remain. Vast chambers with fine stone screens were once the music halls, and behind these screens, the royal ladies would learn music from the great masters of those times.

    According to the indian history jarral rajputs are the tribe of a early hindu cast chandravanshi..After the greatt hindu war (mahabhart) this chandravanshi tribe moved in different distt ( Rehatk , Karnal , Gurdasspur , Kangraa.. A famus Raja his name was Raja Nakha .. He ruled Kalunar .. A boy is born in his family . The boy is very brave and his name was Raja Jeer Rao.
    He do many marriages and he have many sons ...Would later become a tribe.His name known jeeral.And after the wrong pronunciation they called Jarral. Jarral Rajput is a muslim tribe of Azad kashmir . Jammu Kashmir ( india) (Schema has the following origin ) Raja Nakha Raja Barkha Raja Parekh Raja Amber maja Rao Raja Sinha Rao Raja Ayan Rao Raja Sangti Rao Raja jeer Rao Raja kote Rao Raja Dhaj Rao Raja Nank Sinha Raja Sahab Sinha (Raja shair Afghan Khan ) Raja neel Sinha (Raja Noor ud deen khan)


    Mirza Zafar Khan write in his book (Unique Histroy of Rajgan-e-Rajour) . The king of Hindustan( jalal ud-deen Akbar ) Vist kashmir . and live in Rajouri ...Raja mast khan Jarral is ruler of rajour and Raja Hospitality the king of hindustan. One day Jalal-ud-deen ask to the RAJA .. Raja is the title of Hindu king why you use this title?and sugest the title of Nawab ( mirza).
    Raja Mast Khan said : you are right but here is no concept of Nawab ( Mirza) . All peopls think that Raja is High title. King Jalal ud deen Akbar said : ok Raja is best for you but for your family and tribe i give you title of Mirza .The title of Mirza is accepted by Raja Mast khan and and all tribe of jarral rajputs...Until the Mughal goverment are powerfull Many Rajputs Like thi Chibs and Gahakr are used the title of Mirza.
