Description

This well-designed illustrated book provides a fascinating glimpse of the dargah of Nizamuddin Auliya in Delhi. It gives a basic introduction to the doctrines of the Sufis of the Chishti order. It details the life and times of Khwaja Nizamuddin Auliya and his predecessors. Laxmi Dhaul provides a series of fascinating photographs depicting various Sufi rituals performed at the dargah till today, accompanied by a commentary explaining their inner importance in simple terms.

The author-while making no claims that The Dargah of Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya is an academic treatise-has endeavoured to present the saint as someone deeply committed to social reform, human equality and universal love and harmony. The text itself is compact and neatly condensed and well adapted to the impressive set of photographs that accompany it, a rich documentary source on contemporary South Asian Sufi practices. The Dargah of Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya serves a valuable purpose as a general introductory volume.
