Hondamir, like his grandfather, belonged to the Herat literary circle of Timurid vizier Mir Ali-Shir Navai. In 1527 the Moghul conqueror Babur invited Hondamir to India, where he lived and died. Hondamir edited and completed 7th and 8th volums of the general history composed by his grandfather, and approximately in 1500 composed an extract from it "Holaset el-ehbar". Following the same pattern, in 1521 Hondamir composed for Ali-Shir Navai a three-volume general history entitled "Habib al-Siyar", and brought it to his time. Another notable work was "Al-Destour Voser". In the European languages, other works of Hondemir were not published.
