Translated description (original in Tajik)

The Safarnama, by celebrated Persian poet, philosopher and traveller Nasir-i Khusraw (1004–1088) is a unique historical and geographical account of the Muslim world in the medieval period. The travelogue presents Nasir Khusraw’s seven-year journey through the regions of the Muslim East. His meticulous description of the major Muslim cities, mosques, rituals, pilgrimages and ways of life in various regions during his lifetime has been a reference point for historians, ethnographers and anthropologists interested in Muslim civilisations.

This Tajik edition of the Safarnama comprises a critical edition of the text and includes a commentary and glossary to make the text accessible to a wider Tajik readership.
