During his visit, he expressed his desire to present Lord Jaganath with a 50L British Pound and a Kohinoor Diamond. According to legend, the historical records proving Maharaja Ranjit’s wish are still kept by the family of Puri servant Hare Krushna Pratihari.
The British, however, successfully Invaded and ended up taking the diamond from Maharaja Ranjit’s son Duleep Singh. Since then, the valuable diamond has been with the British.

According to the Jaganath Sena, numerous letters have been written to Queen Elizabeth II requesting that the diamond be returned to Lord Jaganath. However, there was no response. Now that Queen Elizabeth II has died, Jaganath Sena members hope that Kohinoor will be returned to its rightful owner, Lord Jaganath.

Surendra Mishra, a heritage expert, stated, “The Kohinoor diamond originally belonged to Lord Jaganath.” When Maharaja Ranjit Singh visited Puri, he stayed at the Dakshin Dwara of Srimandir. There is written proof, and he explicitly stated that he wished to present the Kohinoor diamond to Lord Jaganath.” “We have a lot of evidence in this regard.” We need to tell the world that Kohinoor is from Odisha.

“The Odisha government and the Center should take up the issue and take immediate action to return it to Jaganath Temple,” he added.
