Abstract

The medieval period of architecture is seen to have catered to both pragmatic and communicative needs, and thus it operates both practical and aesthetic sense. Art is used to transform architecture into outer significance through rhymes and artistic sense. Our study will focus on one example of art and architecture of the Mughul era. The other significant strand of the inquiry is the tradition of Sufi poetry. The present research will try to provide evidence in the support for the argument through the monument of “Choti Hindira”. It is one of the forgotten monuments of Dera Ghazi Khan. The present research will explore its archeological significance, art, architecture, poetry, and of its religious aspects. It will also explore its history besides renovation and conservation requirements. The qualitative research methodology is followed to achieve the objectives of the research.
