History[edit]

The region was governed under a Malik named 'Amir' Suri and the mostly Hindu population was not yet converted to Islam.[1]

The word Mandesh is probably a corruption of Madhyadesh from Sanskrit word Madhya (मध्य)Central + Desh (देश) land or country, because it was a mountain province right in the middle of that region.
