KESARI CHAND, Raja of Jasvan, a tiny hill state situated in the foothills of the Sivaliks. Besides being a close relation, he was a confidant and ally of Raja Bhim Chand of Kahlur, who once deputed him to Anandpur to seek from Guru Gobind Singh the loan of an expensive tent and a rare elephant. Raja Bhim Chand was playing a ruse on Guru Gobind Singh who, seeing through the design, told his emissary that he could not part with what were the offerings and presents of his Sikhs. Kesari Chand joined the hill chiefs who fought Guru Gobind Singh in the battle of Bharigani in 1688. He also took part in the battle of Anandpur (AD 1700), and was killed in action.
