Military Organisation: The Bhavani Sword of Shivaji Shivaji and Facets of Maratha Culture, edited by Saryu Doshi,

Title:Military Organisation: The Bhavani Sword of Shivaji Shivaji and Facets of Maratha Culture, edited by Saryu Doshi,
Author:Joshi, P.M.
Publication:Marg
Enumeration:Vol. 34-2, p. 78-84
Abstract:The origin of Shivaji's Bhavani sword is shrouded in conflicting accounts -- legendary, literary, and historical. The search for the sword started in the early 19th century. The swords which have received serious consideration as the original Bhavani Talwar are the inscribed scimitar in the collection of Khan Bahadur Bomanji Pudumji of Pune, the sword inscribed "Shri Bhavani" in the Museum at Mhow, the Indian sword in Buckingham Palace, and the Bhavani sword in the collection of the royal family at Satara.
