Prithviraj Chauhan's Tomb

While the legendary Rajput king Prithviraj Chauhan is a hero in India, his 'grave' in Ghor, the now called-‘ Afghanistan’ is visited by the locals even today.

On the outskirts of Ghazni in Afghanistan are two domed tombs, the larger is of Ghori and few meters away, a second smaller tomb is of Prithviraj Chauhan.

In the center of the second tomb is a bare patch of earth where the actual grave should have been. Hanging over this spot from the top of the dome is a long, thick rope ending in a knot at shoulder height. Local visitors grab the rope in one hand and stamp vigorously with one foot on the bare patch in the center of the tomb where Prithviraj Chauhan is lay buried.

who told Mohammed ghori was such a great king,as he defeated Prithviraj who had more than 1 lakh men while ghori had only 50,ooo hence he was more brave and excellent swords men whom prithviraj can never match his swordmenship.although he was defeated at the first battle of tarain but still he was so humiliated that he didnt return to his family and take an oath that until he defeat the rajput king he wnt never return and he did that.....Long live Shahabuddin mohammed ghori

i just want to answer to shahid bhai that according to u m. ghori was brave if he was brave then why he attacked on rajputs at night even when he knew that rajputs never fought after sunset.if he was brave then why he looted temples and killed innocent people, why he invaded india only for money But prithviraj chauhan didn't do anything like this. even till now his grave disrespected in afganisthan why.u have seen ever in india that any grave of them is disrespected.i have also many more things to say.i respect all religions but evil is evil.GOD IS ONE PLEASE UNDERSTAND IT.

Shahid Bhai,

One thing, You need to understand, All the Muslims in India had been converted forcefully by these inhuman bastards. (Ghori, Shahjahan, Aurangjeb........list goes on....) Before praising them read the true history and their atrocity.

But problem with you guys is that, You dont beleive on any history, you just belive on whatever your Mulla say.... And Mulla says : 'Do the opposite of what the pagans do'.

How can the God say this ?

Few days ago, I had a discussion with some of the muslim brother, They say Pakistan has never been defeated by India in any war...

So that's your basic problem.. You can never accept truth but truth remains same, U believe it or not and I am not here to convince you. I know that's not possible..

the history is that both muhammad ghury and prithiraj chauhan were hero, as alexander and king puru were . i am a muslim and respect both of them as i i respect all the commentators. brothers also i hate the rapists of joti of delhi and the soldiers of india who rape kasmir girls and women and i also hate pak soldiers who rape women in bangladesh in 1971. war is war .it dont follow any rule.the motto is to win any way... arif from bangladesh

Dharti Ka veer yodha,Hindi hriday samrat,maharaja prithvi raj Chauhan amar rahe.

Sabhi hindustanion se mera namra nivedan hai ki vo ghori ke bare me baat na Kare kyu ki ek mahan yodha ki tulna ek kayak aur ek Mamuli se lootere se nahi ki ja sakti .maharaja prithviraj ek mahan yodha the aur unki tulna ek kayar se karna unka apmaan hoga.jai hind

Mohammad Akbar Arghandewal said...

I am Akbar khan from Afghanistan i agree with Ashish Singh...but remember that somethings are controversial and lies against Ghori and also bout Prithvi Raj's toumb in Afghanistan...believe me what u have been told is not prithvi raj's tomb....i live here and i know...what ever people do is unislamic and also they dont even know if its a tomb or not...

zack iron said...

maohamad akbar is a great lier. i agree with Monu & ashish ie chauhan killed ghori even though he was blind.chauhan was the real man not the coward ghor.
i mean if he killed ghor,when captured by chauhan, things would have been far far better in present day india

I am an hindu, bet your blood is boiling already but i don't really care. You go for Mohammed Gori and all hindu's go for Prithviraj Chauhan. Well i got for both. Both of them were great warriors but this is where the good and the bad is created. Mohammed Gori invaded India for no reason. He killed innocent people and all the way to kids; all this for what? for money? He attacked Prithviraj countless times and yet Prithviraj forgave him. Mohammed stole statue's of god from temples many times and now imagine if it was your god... how would you feel? In the end he finally got Prithviraj; made him blind and killed him. Fact is that Prithviraj didn't kill Mohammed Gori because he was assassinated by someone after 12 years of Prithviraj's death. Without knowing the truth, afghans are still disrespecting our hero. Basically Prithviraj Chauhan took the path of truth and fairness and Mohammed Gori took the path of cheating and unfairness. There fore I suggest to you that without knowing to the truth never say anything about it. Mohammed Gori could have become a great warrior but dark side took over him and made him kill innocent and all the way to his own soilders. Trust me when I old enough I will get the hero's tomb back to Ajmer.

A Proud Indian said...

i think that mohammad ghori was really a very great coward!!He did not have the guts to face the real Rajput hero "prithviraj" in the battle field and thus attacked him from behind while he was sleeping....You call such a coward a hero and call him your national heritage??? that's just ridiculous...This great country ,the INDIA and its people have in the past never invaded any country!! never disrespected anyone's religion.Even that cruel foreigner Jalaluddin mohd. who was responsible for the death of the great maharana pratap, was also given the title of akbar by the people of India...such is the greatness of this land and its people who have always welcomed its guests with open arms and were always betrayed !!!

i agree with axel blaze

vinod chaudhary said...

Jai jai prithviraj chauhan..

Insaankhan said...

hello guyz..
i imran khan from delhi & few backs days i just read the history of both great warriors
GAURI was came india because of HAZRAT AJMER. he called him because prithviraj & his soldiers threat him.
even mauhhamd gauri was not intrested in india. he already had lot of task.at time he was involve in mahgolian wars. but HAZRAT AJMER was called him in his night mare.
Gauri was not looted temple. he was distroyed it. the was that pandits of temple was very cruel. they looted common people of india in the name of fear of GOD.
there were magnets in the walls of temple due to this the statue was suspended in the air. when the walls of temple was inspection by mohammaed gauri army. they understand the game of the pandits.
even pandits of temple were tried to give bribe to mohammad gauri but he didn't recieved.
he only take the pieces of the statue. this the whole truth of the story.

Moral of the story:~
Ghori was a coward and unmatchable to Prithviraj Chauhan and Prithviraj Chauhan was the real hero.
He was the honest one,polite one,
a true Rajput and full of humanity.
