In recent years, Persian culture outside Iran has attracted more and more researchers. In this regard, the most important region was South Asia, which is said to have produced an even greater quantity of Persian writings than Iran. South Asian literati loved Persian literature and competed for the patronage of kings’ and governors’ courts. The tazkirahs, Persian biographies of poets, consisting of short biographies and pieces of their poetry, well reflected their activities in Indian sub-continent. This article is a short introduction to tazkirahs preserved in the ‘Aqeel Collection, Kyoto University, most of which are rarely found in other libraries in Japan.
