So beautiful!Tks!

Super. Check out the Europeans sitting on the right. Two seems to be decked in Indian attire. Background church and mosque existing in harmony?

Aren't they all supposed to be Adil-Shahi rulers of Bijapur (with the exception of Shah Ismail Safavi, who is erroneously identified as Shah Abbas in the caption on the top)?
