As the Mughal empire continued to weaken after Aurangzeb's death, the Maratha Peshwa Bajirao I invaded Mughal territories such as Malwa and Gujarat. The Mughal emperor was alarmed by Marathas conquest. In 1737, the Marathas invaded Delhi, defeated the Mughals, and then marched back to their capital Pune.

The Mughal emperor asked for support from the Nizam. The Nizam intercepted the Marathas during the latter's return journey. The two armies clashed near Bhopal.[3][4]


The battle was fought between the Maratha Empire and Mughal forces led by Nizam of Hyderabad near Bhopal in India in December 1737. The Marathas poisoned the water and the replenishment supplies of the besieged Mughal forces. Chimaji was sent with an army of 10,000 men to stop any reinforcements while Bajirao blockaded the city instead of directly attacking the Nizam. The Nizam was forced to sue for peace after he was denied reinforcements from Delhi.[5] The battle resulted in decisive Maratha victory mainly through the swift tactics of Maratha Peshwa Baji Rao.[4]


Later, on 7 January 1738, a peace treaty was signed between Peshwa Bajirao and Jai Singh II, Doraha near Bhopal.[6] Marathas were given the territory of Malwa [4]

The Mughal Empire was left in a wrecked position and was unable to face the later invasion of Nadir Shah.
