in the link I provided above, Lingen wrote very well about this temple token.

"These pieces are commonly known as 'Char Yari' - a reference to the names of the first four Caliphs (Khulfah-e-Rashidun or the Orthodox Caliphs), appearing with the Kalima. These were (and still are) used as 'tawiz' or talisman."
