◾Pṛthvīrājavijay Mahākāvya mentions:

Astrologers predicted that SOMESHWARA's 1st son i.e Prithvirāja, will be an incarnation of BHAGWĀN Rāma: "Your son will be Rāma himself, born again in his desire to complete the task he had started" (6.35)

Prithvirāj - "an avatar of Rama" (रामावतरस्यैव पृथ्वीराजस्य, 8.62) - while his ministers, Kadambvasa and Bhuvanaikamalla, are avatars of Hanuman & Garuda, respectively (9.38-39, 86-89).

Pṛthvīrāj Vijaya is ONLY surviving literary text from Prithvirāj's reign.

◾Vināyaka Pandita has attributed a verse in praise of Prthvirāja found in Sārngadhara-paddhati compiled in 1363 CE:

"It was through King Prithvīrāja that we were protected from enemy destruction and so I worship the very grass on the street of his capital."
