Art/Literary - History / Book on Marahajas\' vehicles
|Hindi term or phrase: (Royal)"tamjam palanquin"|
|I'm translating a history book named "The Automobiles of the Marahaja" from English into Italian (so I don't speak Hindi). My problem is the term TAMJAM. I perfectly know what a palanquin is BUT I don't find any definition the word TAMJAM. The phrase is a title/caption of a photo (image of a royal palanquin). |
Any Ideas? Thanks in advance!
|Tamjam- the royal palanquin|
Tamjam is a open air palanquin - an intricated gorgeous chair with four stands to carry.
Palanquin was for all common men but for Badsah and nawabs (muslim kings) and very rich and honorable persons, tamjam is used.It is social status also. Particularly, it is not hindi word, it is urdu or pharsi word and it was used in Sultanate and Mughal era in India.

|In the first context (the caption) where the word appears perfectly fits you definitions. (But in the second context, which I didn't quote here, fits the oder explanation). Nevermind, thank you very much.|
