Raighu was the most prolific and the last of the great Apabhramsha poets. He also supervised the pratishtha consecration ceremony of many—perhaps most—of the Jain idols carved on the hill side in the Gwalior Fort during the rule of Tomar Dungarsingh.
He wrote many books during sam. 1440-1530 (1383–1468), and is mentioned as the supervising scholar in several inscriptions in the Gwalior fort.
His known works are:
- Appa Samboha Kavva: (literally addressing myself)
- Sammat Gunanihana: written on the request of Goel Agrawal Kamal Singh in sam 1492.
- Sammai Jinachariu: (life of Lord Mahavira) written on the request of Bramha Khelha, the son of Agrawal Sahu Tosau of Hisar. Bramha Khela has an idol of Chandraprabha carved in the Gwalior fort of "11 hand" height. The book also gives a history of the family of Sahu Tosau since the time of Feroze Shah.
