History

Founded in the early 16th century after the death of Shri Mangal Chand, Rana of Bhatwara. Batwara region lay on bank of Satluj river. Rana of Batwara expelled by Raja Madan Sen of Suket because he allied with Raja Megh Chandel of Kot Kaholoor (Bilaspur) in 1240. After expulsion, Rana Batwara was loyal to Raja of Bilaspur's generations and regained his lost territory. Rana Batwara was killed by Raja Shyam Sen of Suket and Raja Man Chand Guleria of Guler whilst he was worshiping in Batwara Palace, forcing two Ranis, the Wazir, other officials, along with the Tikka Sahib, Raghunath Chand, to fled from Batwara. Later, he founded the new state of Mangal, naming in his father's memory Rana Mangal Chand, coronated by Raja of Bilaspur. The state was occupied by the Gurkhas 1803/1815. Rana of Mangal lost his large area portion (Batwara, Kol, Baddu) in 19th century due to bad relationship with British Raj. It was one of most inaccessible state. Local deity are Badu Bada Devta, Baba Nahar Singh, Guga Jahar Peer, Baba Balak Nath, Jalapa Devi, Chamunda. Ranked 10th in order of precedence Shimla hill states.
