Details

A powerful Hindi ruler who defeated the Paramaras of Malwa and successfully repulsed Ghaznavid (Muslim) invasions. A slightly later Sanskrit epic poem called the Prithviraja Vijaya, written in praise of his descendant Prithvi-raja III, states that Ajayaraja "filled the earth" with so many silver coins (rupakas), that he took away the fame of other kings.“ This coin depicts Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth, fortune and prosperity.
