[Preliminary Entry] The Tajribāt al-mujarrabāt-i Ġiyāṯ-šāhī (The experiences of the tested prescriptions of King Ġiyāṯ) is a Persian text dealing with Ayurvedic medicine and the practices to prolong life. The text is divided in ten chapters (faṣl). It was written by Sa‘d Allāh Niẓāmī Zanjānī and is dedicated to a king named Ġiyāṯ Šāh who most probably is Ġiyāṯ al-Dīn Muḥammad Šāh Ḫaljī (r. 1469-1500) of Malwa. This sultan also commissioned a Persian translation of the Śālihotra titled Qurrat al-mulk.
