Ruling Period of Garhwal King Sahajpal

There is Devprayag inscription of Sahajpal of 1548. The inscription period clearly suggests that the crowning date of Garhwal King Sahajpal would not be after 1548. It means the King Sahajpal was crowned before 1548. There is mention of a Garhwal King as Ram Shah in Akbarnama (1581). Ram Shah is identified as Balbhadra Shah or Balram Shah. That means Sahajpal was not ruling Garhwal in 1581. Raturi suggests Ruling period of Sahajpal up to 1575.

Praiseworthy King Sahajpal

Manodayakavya by Bharat poet (1/5-11); describes Sahjapl as brave and strong king. His subject was happy. King Sahajpal was wise king and knew strategies.
Garhwal King was stronger than his enemies. The looter Hussain Khan was wounded in Sahajpal time.
Garhwal King Sahajpal used to offer shelters to scholars. Sahajpal used to offer donation to Brahmins.
Garhwal King was worshipper of Lord Shiva.
