9780199402984: Managing Piety: The Shrine of Data Ganj Bakhsh

The shrine of Ali Hajveri (known as Data Ganj Bakhsh) in Lahore, Pakistan, is one of the South Asias most important Sufi sites. Based on original material gathered by the author, the book gives an account of various developments associated with this shrine, with particular focus on the relationship between the state, public space, the secular, and the religious, as well as giving detailed accounts of the economy, management, and social impact of the shrine. This study aims to be a significant contribution, especially because it fills a lacuna in the study of Sufism in South Asia particularly in Pakistan. No in-depth study of the Data Ganj Bakhsh Shrine has been conducted previously, hence, in that sense, this book may be considered as seminal work on the topic.
