Battle of Peshawar - 1001



Battle of Peshawar, was fought on 27 November 1001 between the army of Mahmud of Ghazni and the Hindu Shahi army of Jayapala, near Peshawar.

In the war,  Jayapala was defeated and captured, and as a result of the humiliation of the defeat, he later immolated himself in a funeral pyre.

This is the first of many major battles in which Mahmud of Ghazni attacked Hindustan and plundered its riches.
