an Indian Sufi poet and pir. He wrote in the Awadhi language, and in the Persian Nasta'liq script. His most notable work is the epic poem Padmavat (1540). Much of the information about Jayasi comes from legends, and his date and place of birth are a matter of debate. As the nisba "Jayasi" suggests, he was associated with Jayas, an important Sufi centre of medieval India, in present-day Uttar Pradesh. However, there is debate about whether he was born in Jayas, or migrated there for religious education.
