The Monogram



The monogram of Raj Tamkuhi has essentially had the fish (the Mahi Maratib, conferred upon Maharaja Kalyan Mall by Akbar), the baton (which represents the mansab), the lions (which represent the badge of lion conferred by emperor Muhammad Shah on Raja Gandharp alias Hamir Sahi) and the Aum (to represent the Sanatan Dharma).
