The inscription above is as follows:
ran haar hajaar baras kumbhi narak mara che yo koi des ko raja
cho so kumbhi narak mein deeno che anek paap ko karan haar che
Having lost at battle, for a thousand years, the king of a country suffers in hell
He has been in hell for all these days and lost (in battle) because of his sins
This is very similar in feel and painterliness to Mewar painting of circa 1750, such as an example in the S.S.Bakliwala Collection (Anjan Chakraverty, Indian Miniature Paintings, Delhi, 1996, p.60).
