Siege of Chaghansarai, 1518

The siege of Chaghansarai of 1518 was an early step in Babur's attempts to conquer an empire in Hindustan. Chaghansarai is now known as Asadabad, and is to be found to the north-east of Asadabad, just inside Afghanistan. Its capture came during a gap in Babur's memoirs, and so we know very little about it, but in the following year when the memoirs resume Babur was operating further to the east, where he captured Bajaur.
