The history of India has many layers to it. So many dynasties and rulers ruled the country that it’s hard to find the lineage of the culture we own.

The Kohinoor diamond is one of the most beautiful pieces of art, which has its origin in India. It was looted many times and brought back several times in history. During British rule in India, it was again taken away. There have been demands to bring it back, but unfortunately, there has been no fruition.

One of the largest diamonds in the world, Kohinoor means the mountain of light. Here is the journey of India’s most coveted diamond, Kohinoor.
