The First Battle of Dewair, a forgotten war for freedom, was fought between Maharana Pratap and the Mughal in 1582. The Maharana attacked the Mughal stations camped at the village of Dewair. Behlol Khan, the Mughal Commander at Dewair, retaliated against the Mewari forces. A fierce battle followed, and Behlol Khan was brutally killed by Pratap.

His death caused commotion in the Mughal camp, and soon the Mughal soldiers started fleeing the battlefield. The Mewari forces brutally destroyed the Mughals and avenged the damages of Haldighati. The Maharana emerged as the glorious victor, while his son Kunwar Amar Singh also showed exemplary valour in the battlefield.

After victory was sought at Dewair, the Maharana with the vision of recovering and reestablishing his control over Kumbhalgarh, camped at the bamks of a bank near the fortress. The outcome of Dewair frightened the imperial Mughal army to such an extent that they also fled Kumbhalgarh without a fight. The mighty fortress of Kumbhalgarh was regained and restored to the pride of Mewar. [ref]
