Mausoleum and Minarat of Mir Mohammed Masum Shah Bakhri



Mausoleum and Minarat of Mir Muhammad Masoom Shah Bakhri also known as Syed Nizamuddin Mir Muhammad Masoom Shah was a sixteenth-century Sindhi Muslim historian, physician and pharmacist from Bakhar, Sindh (modern-day Pakistan). He is known for writing a history of Sindh, Tarikh i Sind (also known as, Tarikh i Masumi, after the author), published in ca 1600. He was also a trusted lieutenant of the Mughal emperor Akbar. In around 1595 he led Akbar's army in a battle against the Panni Afghans stronghold of Sibi in northwest Quetta, resulting in Baluchistan being annexed into the Mughal empire. Subsequently, in 1598, he was appointed the governor of Sind and Sibi by Akbar.

The Mughal Images immediately took a much greater interest in realistic portraiture than was typical of Persian miniatures. Animals and plants were the main subject of many miniatures for albums and were more realistically depicted. To upload your images click here.
