Recently I have visited the Ahsan Manzil Museum and came to know about the great diamond Daria i noor. I tried to read more about this diamond but got so many discrepancy.
First of all, i found that the original daria i noor is of 186 carat which is larger than koh i noor and it was taken to Iran by Nadir shah when he invaded india in 1739.
But another source says that the diamond is kept in sonali bank which was bought by Khaja Alimullah. But the main problem is the diamond stored in sonali bank is only 26 carats and Iran still claims that they have got the Daria i noor.
If the diamond is still in Iran then what it is in sonali bank? I hope you know some details regarding this discripancy and tell me the real thing.
