Mughal Attacked to Jagannath Temple
In 1590, Qutlu Khan Lohani, an officer of Daud, declared himself independent and assumed the title of “Qutlu Shah”. Raja Man Singh who was the Mughal governor of Bihar, started an expedition against him.
Before facing Man Singh, Qutlu Shah died. Qutlu Khan’s son Nasir Khan, after little resistance, accepted Mughal sovereignty and paid homage to Man Singh on 15 August 1590. Nasir Khan was then appointed Governor of Odisha and signed a treaty which ceded the region of Puri.
Nasir Khan remained faithful to the Mughal empire for two years but after that he violated the conditions of his treaty by laying siege to the Jagannath Temple of Puri. Man Singh attacked Nasir Khan and decisively defeated him on 18 April 1592 in a battle near the present day Midnapore town. By 1593, Odisha had passed completely to the Mughal empire and was a part of Bengal Subah.
