"Ladakh qilimrao jamun" (= Ladakh in the Empire of Jamun).

What's meaning for 'gadadhar ji saha'?

Hi,
Gadadhar will be the king. Ji is the honoric, and Sahay means help Shah means ruler. So "gadadhar ji saha" will be something like "Honorable (Mr) Gadadhar the king"

Thanks,
Saikat

Would 'Gadadhar Sahay' not be an invocation for help to Lord Hanuman (Gada Dhar = Bearer of the 'Gada') - as is used in normal practice rather than the rulers name? Unless of course there was a ruler by this name when there coins were minted. Many states used invocation of the name of a deity on their coins - like Bundi - 'Ram singh'?

PS: I have never studied these coins and have no idea of them - this is just from experience.
