Every year, Maharana Pratap Jayanti is celebrated on May 9, following the English calendar. However, the Hindu calendar shows Jyeshtha’s birth anniversary to occur on the tithi of his Shukla Paksha, so this year’s anniversary falls on June 13.
On Sunday, India commemorates the birth anniversary of Maharana Pratap, the 13th king of Mewar. Maharana Pratap Jayanti, a Hindu festival celebrated every May 9, corresponds with the English calendar. According to the Hindu calendar, the warrior king’s birth anniversary falls on the Tritiya tithi of Jyeshtha’s Shukla Paksha and is observed this year on June 13.
Maharana Pratap Jayanti is celebrated in full swing in several states, including Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh.
Maharana Pratap had several lesser-known attributes:
The first point is. May 9, 1540, was the date of Maharana Pratap’s birth in a Rajput family. Udai Singh II, his father, was the 12th ruler of the Mewar dynasty and the founder of Udaipur. In addition to Pratap, there were three brothers and two stepsisters in his family.
2. Maharana Pratap was one of the tallest warriors in Indian history, standing 2.26 meters (7 feet 5 inches) tall. He would wear body armor weighing 72 kilograms (kg) and carry an 81 kg spear.
3. Maharaja Pratap is renowned for his valiant fight against the expansionism of the Mughal empire and his crucial role in the Battle of Haldighati and the Battle of Dewar. In 1577, 1578, and 1579, he defeated the Mughal emperor Akbar three times.
4. Maharana Pratap was married to 11 wives and had 17 children. Maharana Amar Singh 1, his eldest son, became the 14th king of the Mewar dynasty.
Here are the five points. After being injured in a hunting accident, Maharana Pratap died at 56 on January 19, 1597.
On May 9, Prime Minister Narendra Modi hailed Maharana Pratap for his bravery, boundless courage, and battle skills, saying he brought glory to the country. The sacrifice he made for his motherland, Modi said, will forever be remembered.
