Firman (Official Decree) With Illuminated Heading

Not on view

The text of this royal order grants the town of Raikur to the Sufi Saint Sayyid (Abdul Qadir, known as Qadir Mian). It was issued in the name of the last Bahmani ruler, Kalimullah, after the end of his official tenure, as was sometimes done with Bahmani coinage as well.
