Siddhraj seems to be a strange mixture of greatness and medieval callousness, at least in popular imagination.One of the favourite legends with the Gujarat bards is woven round the siege of Junagadh by 'Siddhraj' Jaysinh.Siddharaj wanted to marry the princess Ranakdevi.But his vassal, Ra Khengar, the Chief of Junagadh, married her before he could do so. An enraged Siddharaj attacked the mountain-fortress of Junagadh. It fell after Ra Khengar's nephews betrayed him. Ranakdevi refused Siddharaj's advances for marriage aftre he had killed her husband and two sons. She was forcibly brought to Wadhwan where she committed the ritual of Sati at this place to protect her honour. It is believed that her curse made Bhogavo, a local river, waterless, forever. Some historians doubt the authenticity of the story. Siddhraj is said to have ascended the throne of Patan after killing his uncle Mulraja Solanki. In condemnation of this act, when the local Brahmins refused to participate in the inauguration of the new palace, commissioned by the late Mularaja, he invited and settled Brahmins from North India. He also features in the legend of Jasma Odan, a beautiful woman of the tank diggers' community-oudes, who were digging a new tank in Patan. Already married, she refused Siddharaj's advances and committed sati to protect her honour. It is believed that her curse made this tank waterless and the king without an heir to the kingdom of Gujarat.
