The name Kohinoor (translated from Hindi "mountain of light") is the name of 105 carat diamond, which has been the biggest diamond in the world known to people for thousands of years. It has been found in Golkonda in the state of Andhra Pradesh in South India and it had belonged to different Indian and Persian kings that had been fighting over the centuries in order to possess the diamond. Subsequently the diamond Kohinoor becomes property of Crown of the United Kingdom and now it is a part of the royal crown. There is a dispute over the age of the diamond. According to some sources it was found 3200 years BC, and according to others 5000 years BC. Until 300 years ago the only source of diamonds was Golkonda and then diamond deposits in Brazil were found. We sincerely hope that the Indian restaurant Kohinoor will become a jewel of the authentic Indian cuisine in the very center of Sofia.
