Integral India: Divine Music

  • Sharebar

Part of the series called ‘Integral India’ that explores the different facets of Kashmir, ‘Divine Music’ presents the development of Islam in Kashmir that has strong roots in Sufism. Only in Kashmir are Islamic prayers recited and sung. A historical written contract permitting this form of worship exists in Srinagar. This form of unique worship is another significant example of Kashmir’s syncretic and harmonious culture.
