By: Bhishma Kukreti (A History Student)

In East North of Garhwal there were two main Gadhis –Lobha or Lohava Gadh or Lobha or Lohava Fortress and Chandpur Gadhi. These Gadhis were defense Gadhi for Garhwal to protect Kumaoni encroachment or attack. Chauhan chieftains captured these Gadhi from Khas chieftains.
As per Raturi, Dilevar Singh and Pramod Singh had been brave, strong and famous chieftains of Lobha or Lohava Fortress. Already the folklores are lost about chieftains of Lobh Gadh.
Panwar defeated Chauhan of Lobha Gadh and Chauhan became regional commanders of Panwar Kingdom. These Chauhan are called Lobhan or Lobha Negi. Lobhan or Lobha Negi always had been brave soldiers in defending Garhwal in Panwar rule. Garhwal King Court Poet and Historian Maularam describes about Lobha Negi as
चढ़ी फ़ौज तब चले कुमाऊं , बाजन लगे ढोल दमाऊ
सवा लाष संग फ़ौज तुलानी , तीन ढोल संग भये सलानी
लोभी अरु बंधाणी आये , तड़ा तोमड़ा संग माहि लाये

(मौलाराम , गढ़राजवंश काव्य , पर्ण 12 ब )
