The Solanki dynasty witnessed a new peak of power and prestige under the rule of Jayasinha Siddharaja who ascended the throne after his father and King Karna at a very young age in 1092-93. He adopted the title of Siddharaja at the time of his coronation.

 Jayasinha was a brave warrior and military commander. After a consolidation of power and position as a king in the state, he carried out many military campaigns for the territorial expansion of his state. He subdued the Chauhans of Sakambhari but later as a good diplomat, he developed friendly relations with them by marrying Princess of the Chauhans. King Arnoraja of Chauhans suffered defeat from King Jayasinha. King Jayasinha got phenomenal success against the Paramaras of Malwa. He carried out a successful military campaign against Malwa and vanquished a large part of Malwa by 1137 AD.

 After his decisive conquest against the Paramaras of Malwa, Jayasinha assumed the title of ‘Avantinath’ (Lord of Malwa). Jayasinha also subdued the Chandelas of Bundelkhand. Actually, after his Malwa conquest, Jayasinha annexed a large part of Malwa into his state, bringing the Chandelas in direct contact with Jayasinha due to the shared territorial boundary. Thus the territorial extension of Gujarat state into Malwa led Jayasinha to a conflict with the Chandelas of Bundelkhand. Jayasinha also vanquished Aabhir, a minor ruler in the Saurashtra region. In brief he got great military success in all directions of his kingdom, resulting in territorial expansion and secured frontiers of his state.
