Umdat-ut-Tawarikh

Description Anyone interested in reading the true history of the Punjab and the Sikhs pertaining to the entire eighteenth century and the first half of 19th century should go through the English translated version of an original work of history written in Persian This Persian Version, "Udmat-ut-Twarikh" was written by an official, diplomatic / representative of the Khalsa Darbar government of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. He wrote his history based on his own daily notes as well as the similar notes written by his two illustrious ancestors who had served in similar capacities under the ancestors of Maharaja. Thus, it is one of primary sources of Punjab / Sikh history of this period. The English translated version from Persian is a faithful rending of the original and a great source of information to the modern readers and researchers.
