The Divine Court (Darbar) of the Sikh Gurus grew in size and importance as the line of Gurus progressed, beginning with the comparatively simple following, which gathered around Guru Nanak, and climaxing in the celebrated darbar of Guru Gobind Singh. Focusing on the traces of documentary evidence available in Punjabi, Hindi and Persian sources, this book meticulously reconstructs the evolving nature of the darbars of the Sikh Gurus in different historical contexts. Fenech also deals incisively with Nand Lal, the most prominent member of the tenth Guru's many attendant poets. According to the modern Sikh Rahit Marayada, he commands a semi-canonical status equalled only by Bhai Gurdas, yet his works are seldom consulted.
