The Battle of Mandsaur took place in Mandsaur, India between the Maratha Empire troops, commanded by Malharrao Holkar, and Jaisingh of Amber, in which Jaisingh was defeated in February, 1733. Malhar Rao Holkar then conquered Bundelkhand and Bundi.
The battle took place in the year 1733 A.D. The Maratha Empire was in expansion mode and wanted to conquer northwest India from Mughals. Their opponents in this battle were the Kachhwaha Rajputs of Amber (it remains unclear if their suzerain was the Mughal throne at Delhi).
The Maratha victory at the Battle of Mandsaur had the following consequences:
- Scindias and Holkars were emboldened to renew their attack on Rajasthan.
- Kota and Bundi were made the next targets in the same year by the Marathas.
