M.A. Nayeem (Author)

This book - The Heritage of Bahmanis and the Baridis completes The Heritage series of book which the author, Dr.M.A. Nayeem had began a decade ago.

These five magnum opus volumes present for the first time a comprehensive illustrated account with several hundreds of historical photographs, in each volume, both multi-colour and monochrome, relating to numerous aspects-history, socio-economic, cultural, art, architecture, religion archaeology, numismatics, foreign relations with west Asia, etc. They cover 600 years of the medieval Deccan from 1347-1947 A.D.

The present volume, profusely illustrated, an outcome of several years research, is a broad based- study that integrates diverse elements and presents a synthesized panoramic survey, covering its four capitals. It recaptures the sublime spirit of life and times in the vast Bahmani empire which extended from sea to sea, and which had left lagacies of culture that had grounded in powerful set of oriental ideas and traditions related to a specific social - cultural context. These traditions brought by the foreign west Asian immigants, including the founders of the Bahmani and Baridi dynasties who hailed from lran and Turkey, respectfully.The traditions expended in court culture, social institutions, customs and ceremonies, dress, and etiquette, rituals, art, architecture, religion, persian language, epigraphy, calligraphy, literature etc. underlined and marked the cohesive and harmonious society. These aspects contributed to the evolution of a composite cultures, of which the four capital Daulatabad, Gulbarga, Firozabad and Bidar were the nucleus and cradle.
