Who was Mir Jumla???
Mir Jumla II was a rich diamond merchant who later rose to fame after becoming the ‘Wazir’ of the Golconda Sultan Abdullah Qutub Shah. His fame and power increased so much that he was invited by Shahjahan to Delhi. Later, he developed a close proximity to Aurangzeb. The latter appointed him as a subahadar of Bengal (1660-1663).
