‘A reprint of Muslim Shrines in India is most welcome, and reading the volume again of great profit to anyone interested in Sufism, Indian Islam and contemporary politics in India.’ — The Medieval History Journal.
The rhythm of Muslim life in India has always been marked by customs and festivals relating to saints and their tombs. The dargahs, or shrines erected on an around these tombs remain some of the finest specimens of Indo-Muslim architecture. This book brings together documentary, interpretive, and theological approaches to the study of the dargah. It describes the location, architecture, rituals, and vaious kinds of worship that take place in the country’s major Muslim shrines. It also looks at pilgrims who are drawn to the dargah–their aspirations, their faith, their general social and religious outlook. The collection includes contributions from a number of eminent scholars in the field. A new introduction, written especially for this edition by Marc Gab orieau, addresses the developments that have taken place in the research on Muslim shrines since this book was first published.
