Rana Lakha History

During his time were discovered the tin and silver mines of Jawura which provided a source of wealth. The kingdom grew prosperous. The ruler of Marwar, a Rathore, offered his daughter in marriage to the heir apparent, Chanda. Lakha however, married the princess himself on the understanding that the son of the Rathore princess would succeed to the throne. The rightful heir, Chanda, accepted this condition. This led to several years of Rathore domination which ended in tragedy.

The infant Mokul was declared king after Lakha, and his mother invited her brother, Raja Rainmal of Marwar, a Rathore, to act as regent. Rainmal appointed Rathores to all positions of importance. The queen realised that the freedom and more so, the safety of her son were in jeopardy. She appealed to Chanda to come to her aid. He had been living in voluntary exile, but returned to organise resistance to Rathore domination. Raja Rainmal was finally killed by stratagem. A young woman gave the elderly regent a drink and then tied him to his bed with his own turban. He was surprised by his enemies and killed. His son Jodha fled and, having made peace with Mewar, established his capital at Jodhpur.
