From the beginning of civilization, India has had great rulers under whom the Hindu civilization has progressed and reached new heights. They were the reason for making India the ” Sone ki chidiya” that India was famous for. Rajput Kings have immensely contributed in this in every time period. But there have also been other great kings who took birth in times when India and hindus needed warriors and heroes to save its civilization from Islamic invaders like Mughals and Turks. In this article we would look at 5 such Rajput Kings who took charge in situations like these and became immortal heroes of Hindu history. I suggest you to visit the links in the list below to learn about them.

1. Undefeated rana Kumbha ( maharana Kumbhakaran)

We all have heard names of legends like Maharana Pratap of Mewar. But before the Great Maharana Pratap was his forefather- Rana Kumbhakaran or Rana Kumbha who whose kingdom was surrounded by Islamic Sultanates from all sides. He fought all of them at the same time with a small army and never lost a battle. From Delhi Sultanate to Gujrat and Malwa Sultanate all fell to his feet crashing in front of him when they collided with this great Rajput King in battle.

But unfortunately this undefeated legend has been left out of our History books. It is out duty to tell about his struggle against Islamic kingdoms to our next generations.
