 History of Uttarakhand (Garhwal, Kumaon and Haridwar) -324 

                       ByBhishma Kukreti (A History Research Student)

                 When Jgatipal or Jagatpal or his heir were ruling on Chandpur-Devalgarh and expanding territory on western Garhwal, on the same period Kumaon or Champawat Kings were perusing for expanding their territories towards west of Kumaon or east Garhwal. Bhartichand and Ratanchand already terrorized   Doti King in Doti (present West Nepal). Kirtichand came under the influence of Baba Nagnath due to win over Doti army.  Bab Nagnath became chief advisor or Kumaon King Kirtichand. Baba Nagnath advised Kirtichand to expand towards west (that is Garhwal). Bab Nagnath told to Kirtichand to expand towards west because his disciple Satyanath was in Garhwal.
       As per advice o order of Nagnath, Kirtichnad attacked on east Garhwal and captured Chaubhainsi, Salam, Faldakot, Uchakot and Dhaniyakot. Kirtichand also captured Kotauli,Chhakhata, Kota, Pali Pachhaun,  and Baramandal. Kirtichand and his army killed the innocent people for terrorizing. The above region was under Katyuri King and Katyuri king accepted the subordination of Kirtichand.
 It is said that Kumaon King Kirtichand defeated Garhwal region and Garhwal King ran away. It is said (Pandey in Kumaon ka Itihas, page 252) that later on as per advice of Satyanath Kumaon King returned the territory to Garhwal King.
