A battle ensued in the vicinity of Lamghan ending with the defeat of the Raja and overtures being made for peace.
There are some grounds supporting that the old Hindu city of Lahore did not occupy exactly the site of the modern city.
The name of the village was formerly Icchra Lahore.
Moreover, some of the oldest and most sacred Hindu shrines are found within this locality, namely Bhairo ka sthain and the Chandrat.
The next mention of Lahore is in the Rajputana chronicles, where the Bussas of Lahore, a Rajput tribe, are mentioned as rallying to the defence of Chittore, when besieged by Muslim forces in the beginning of the ninth century.
At length, in 975 AD, Sultan Sabuktigin, Governor of Khorassan and father of the celebrated Sultan Mahmud Ghaznavi advanced beyond the Indus.
The oldest authentic document about Lahore was written anonymously in 982 and is called Hudud-i-Alam.
