NABHA

Nabha was a state of the Sikh Royal House of Siddhu Jat origins founded by the grandson of Chaudhary Phul Singh. Claiming descent from the Jaisal, founder of the State of Jaisalmer in 1156, the founder of this Sikh dynasty, Phul, was Chaudhri (Governor) of a country located at the south east of Delhi. Phul’s descendants founded 4 States: Patiala, Jind, Faridkot and Nabha. Nabha was founded by the great-grandson of Phul in 1755.
Nabha State remained opposed in policy to Patiala, and this reflects in its coinage. The earlier coins of Raja Jaswant Singh use the Durrani legends as common with the Cis-Sutlej States, but later coins of Raja Bharpur Singh use the Sikh legends. The Durrani couplet is found on a few coins of these rulers, which indicates it was used for ceremonial purposes only.
