The worlds most famous diamond was extracted from south indian mine
According to records, the famous diamond was discovered in Golkonda, Andhra Pradesh. It was mined from the Rayalaseema diamond mine during the reign of the Kakatiya dynasty. According to records, the Khiljis made successful raids in Southern India under the leadership of Alauddin Khilji, and it is believed that the world-famous diamond was acquired during one of these expeditions in 1310. The diamond was then passed from Ibrahim Lodi to Babur, Shah Jajan, and others. Then, in 1739, Nadir Shah, the Persian monarch, invaded the Mughal empire and obtained the aforementioned diamond. According to legend, Nadir Shah was the one who gave this diamond its current name, Koh-i-Noor.
