While Sanyogita lost her heart to Prithviraj Chauhan, Raj Jaichand hated her. During the time Prithviraj Chauhan was ruling in Delhi, the Swayamvara of Princess Sanyogita was organized. The kings and princes of different states were called in this swayamvara.

Prithvi Chauhan got this invitation, but his feudatories felt wrong in this matter. Due to which Prithviraj declined this invitation. This rave of Prithviraj enraged the king, after which Jaichand made an idol of Prithviraj Chauhan at the door of the Yagya Mandap and got him installed as the gatekeeper. Through this decision, King Jaichand wants to humiliate Prithviraj, but it happened which no one expected.
