Ibrahim, the King of Bejiapur No. 3 (1st 1534-57), the First Sunni Muslim King. 4. Ali Adilsah the 1st, King of Bejiapur No. 4 (1557-1580). 5. Ibrahim Adilsah Jagat Goru King of Bejiapur No. 5 (1580-1626). During his reign, a Bejiapur kingdom achieved its greatest territorial and political power. Numerous splendid buildings were erected and his memory is still cherished. 6. Sultan Mohommed the King of Bejiapur No. 6 (1626-1656). During the reign, Bejiapur reached its greatest prosperity and its power reigned from the Bay of Bengal to the Indian Ocean. 7. Adil Adisah King of Bejiapur 2nd (1656-1672). 8. Sicander Adil shah, the last king of Bejiapur (1672-1686). In 1686, Bejiapur, along with other kingdoms, was blotted out from the role of Indian kingdoms, after enjoying nearly 200 years of power. Prior to Adilshah the 1st, the king's mausoleum was at Gogi. The last 5 were interred at Nijapur. The above information is taken from a previous owner's notes bearing a relief stamp 'Government of Bombay'.
