Which Way Up? Indian State (Karachi?) Temple Token or ???

If I had enough spare time, I might try to work out which way up / round this should be, try to read the inscriptions, and identify it fully, but I'm being lazy.

I tried asking our very nice Indian staff member, but she says it's before her time, and not in Hindi1

13.7 grams of silver, although not tested it yet.

Not familiar with this coin/token(?) but here auction link they list one which is very similar but with some different writing/ornaments and in gold.

At least you can see from their photos which side up! (assuming they know) ☺️

Thanks.

Yes, Dix Noonan Webb (DNW) appear to have considerable expertise in Islamic and similar coins, so I would assume they know, in which case, my coin should be rotated like this:

and

Although this step is rather like discovering how to open a box containing a very large jigsaw puzzle.

Next step...
