|Sinhasan Battesee Stories-1|
Sinhaasan Batteesee tales are linked to the throne of Vikramaaditya which was lost and then found by King Bhoj, the Paramaar King of Dhaara Nagaree, after many centuries. The King Bhoj is also a very famous and qualitative King. A saying is famous quoting this King in Hindi, "Kahaan Raajaa Bhoj, Aur Kahaan Gangoo Telee". When he found this throne he wanted to sit on the throne, then each of the 32 female figures carved on that throne told him a story about Vikramaaditya's qualities challenging him to sit over that. They asked him if he was like King Vikramaaditya who could sit on that throne? Each time he wanted to sit on this throne, one female figure came to life and told him a story about Raajaa Vikramaaditya and asked him if he was worthy to sit on that throne. This caused him to think twice before sitting on that throne 32 times and thus he listened to 32 stories about Vikramaaditya, and each time Bhoj after listening to the story felt his inferiority to the King Vikramaaditya. Finally he had to bury that throne at the same place from where he took it out. The same 32 stories are given here. These stories are taken from the website where these stories are given in Hindi Language. Stories given here are not the translation of those stories, but they are adapted from there.
