Raag Siri was favoured by the Hindus for religious occasions and is found in many of the old treatises. In the Raagmala listed as a parent raag, it currently is a member of the puroi thata. Still a popular concert raag today, it is considered one of the most famous from among the North Indian classical system. Guru Nanak, Guru Amar Das, Guru Ram Das, and Guru Arjan composed to this raag. Traditionally performed at sunset, it is assigned to the rainy season as well as the Indian months of November and December. Its mood is one of majesty combined with prayerful meditation. This raga is always referred to as "Siri Raag" rather than placing the term raga before the name. It accompanies about 142 shabads.
