Ram-Tanka or the Hindu temple tokens were made since ancient times for the purpose of worship. One would keep such treasure in their Diwali Jewelers box and worship every year on the auspicious day of Diwali. Some got the tokens looped so that they could wear it as pendant. The sizes normally vary from half tola to four tolas, the last being the largest found so far. This majestic temple-token looks so impressive that it reminds one of the five mohur of Akbar the great.
