HISTORY: 

The early history of the state is unknown as all records seem to have
perished. Based on the succession of rulers, the state may have come
into existence around 1200AD, though it could have been in existence
much earlier. Prior to this, the area was under the rule of Petty
chiefs, called Ranas and Thakurs as was the case in Kullu, Mandi and
Kangra. Bangahal state lost much territories in invasions by Mandi and
Kullu a number of times between 1240 and 1637, but the greatest loss
occured in the reign of Raja Prithvi Pal around 1720. Rulers and estate
holders were….

  • Raja PRITHVI PAL,
    Raja of Bangahal 1709/1720, born 1686, during his reign his
    father-in-law sought to annex the state by treachery, the Raja was
    invited to Damdama Palace in Mandi and after a short time he was
    murdered, his body was burnt, but his head was cut off and buried in
    front of the Palace; Raja Sidhi Sen then invaded Bangahal, but the
    Rajmata sought the help of Raja Man Singh of Kullu who drove back the
    invading Mandi forces, and annexed a large portion of the state to
    Kullu; he married in 1706 (amongst others), a
    daughter of
    Raja
    Sidhi Sen of Mandi, and had issue. He
    died about 1720 or 1725 or 1728.
