She was very beautiful, hence the name – Kamalapati

In the 16th century, Raja Kripal Singh was Sarutia from the princely state of Salkanpur in the Sehore district. A daughter was born to him. She was very beautiful, that’s why they called her Kamalapati. Princess Kamalapati had a master’s degree in education, horsemanship, wrestling, and archery. The responsibility of caring for the princely state of Salkanpur rested with Raja Kripal Singh Sarautia and Princess Kamalapati.

Married to Raja Nizam Shah of Ginnaurgarh

In the 16th century, the state of Ginnaurgarh was formed by merging around 750 villages. Their king was Suraj Singh Shah (Salaam). His son was Nizam Shah. Rani Kamalapati was married to him. The King of Gond, Nizam Shah, had built a very beautiful palace in the name of his wife Rani Kamalapati in 1702 near the pond in Bhopal. This palace is still known as Rani Kamalapati Mahal. In 1989, this palace was taken under his protection by the Archaeological Survey of India.

To get revenge on her husband’s murderers, she took the help of Afghan Sardar.

Chain Singh, a Salkanpur resident, wanted to marry Rani Kamalapati. He tried several times to assassinate King Nizam Shah, but failed every time. Then one day Chain Singh invited Raja Nizam Shah to his house to eat and killed him by giving him poison. Following this, Chain Singh attacked the Ginnaurgarh fort in order to trap Queen Kamalapati. To escape him, Queen Kamalapati hid with her son Naval in the same Bhopal palace, which was built by King Nizam Shah.

After some time, Queen Kamalapati learned that some Afghans had come and stayed near the Bhopal border. The head of these Afghans was Dost Mohammad Khan, who used to fight wars with money. Dost Mohammad Khan attacked the Ginnaurgarh fort at the urging of Rani Kamalapati, in which Chain Singh was killed.

When her 14-year-old son fought with Mohammad Khan

Dost Mohammad Khan captured the Ginnaurgarh fort. But after this, Dost Mohammad Khan showed his intention. Seeing the nefarious intentions of Mohammad Khan, Rani Kamalapati’s 14-year-old son, Naval Shah along with 100 of his fighters fought a fierce battle with Dost Mohammad Khan in Lal Ghati. In this war, Dost Mohammad Khan killed Nawal Shah. So much blood was shed in this place that the ground here turned red and therefore it is called Lal Ghati even today.
