Jam Nizamuddin II

Jam Nizamuddin II

Jám Nizámuddín II (also Jam Nizam al-Din) (Sindhi: ڄام نظام الدين عرف ڄام نندو),(Urdu جام نظام الدين ثاني ) reigned between 1461-1508. He was the most famous Ruler of the Samma Dynasty, which ruled in Sindh and parts of Punjab and Balochistan (region) from 1351-1551 C.E. He was known by the nickname of Jám Nindó. His capital was Thatta in modern south Pakistan.

The Samma Dynasty reached the height of its power during the reign of Jam Nizamuddin II, who is still recalled as a hero, and his rule as a golden age of Sindh.

His grave is located at Makli near Thatta. The tomb is an impressive stone structure with fine ornamental carving similar to 15th century Gujrat style. It has been restored but unfortunately suffers from cracks and wall distortions caused by weathering and erosion of the slope on which it stands. After his death, his weak son Jám Ferózudin lost the Sultanate in 1525 C.E. to the invading army of Shah Beg Arghun, who had been thrown out of Kandahar by Babur.

Famous quotes containing the word jam:

    We fight our way through the massed and leveled collective safe taste of the Top 40, just looking for a little something we can call our own. But when we find it and jam the radio to hear it again it isn’t just ours—it is a link to thousands of others who are sharing it with us. As a matter of a single song this might mean very little; as culture, as a way of life, you can’t beat it.
    Greil Marcus (b. 1945)
