Synopsis: Using a combination of ethnographic data based on the description of shrines and rituals and of popular literature, this book seeks to investigate Hindu 'folk' traditions in Rajasthan, where the presence of Muslim elements is conspicuous. The author reaches the conclusion that the followers of these cults had originally been converted to Ismailism during the 13th and 14th centuries by missionaries acting under the direction of the central Ismaili dawa in the Multan region.

About the Author: Dominique-Sila Khan is an Associate Fellow of the Institute of Rajasthan Studies, Jaipur and a member of the Societe Asiatique, Paris.
