The History of Rani Kamalapati
Rani Kamalapati Railway Station was previously known as Habibganj railway station. For years, the name wasn’t changed until recently after the PPP of Bansal Group with the government, the station was revamped and the government named the station Rani Kamalapati after the Gond Queen.
Rani Kamalapati was the Gond Queen, daughter of Kirpal Singh Sarautia, the king of the princely state Salkanpur, Sehore. She was an exceptional horse rider, wrestler, archer, and military official for her father’s military force.
Rani Kamalapati was one of the seven wives of Nizam Shah son of Suraj Singh Shah who ruled 750 villages in the 16th century. A cousin of Nizam Shah wanted to marry Rani Kamalapati and so to save her honor, she went into hiding with her 12-yr-old son and sought help from the Afgan Leader Dost Mohammad Khan.
Dost Mohammad Khan was also caught in the beauty of Rani Kamalapati and wanted to capture Bhopal with her. To fight Dost Mohammad Khan, the son of Rani Kamalapati raged a war in which he received a brutal death. After which, the Gond queen took Jal Samadhi with all her treasure and jewelry.
