Origin

Chatyal (चाट्याल) may have originated from place Chatalika/ Chāṭalikā (चाटलिक) mentioned in Rajatarangini.

History

Rajatarangini[3] tells us ....The valor of Udaya, born of the line of Ichchhaṭi, was conspicuous in battle, although he was very young. He dwelt with Prithvihara, but the latter pulled him by the beard, whereupon he beat Prithvihara and snatched the sword from his hand. The battle took place just by the side of the capital, and oven women and children were killed, being accidentally struck by arrows. Thus, there was an increased slaughter of men, and the king became confounded and he was unable to get out of the array of the soldiers. When the king's movement was thus stopped, Somapala took this opportunity to plunder Chāṭalikā (चाटलिक). (VIII,p.65) (ChāṭalikāChatyal)
