Islamic Architecture of the Indian Subcontinent

Bianca Maria Alfieri (Author)
Synopsis While many people are familiar with the Islamic architecture of the Mughal dynasty in India, particularly such famous monuments and sites as the Taj Mahal an Fatehpur Sikri, less is known about the Islamic architecture that preceded the arrival of that dynasty in the sixteenth century. This is the first book to cover the whole history of Islamic architecture in India from its beginnings in the thirteenth century until its decline in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Encompassing the whole subcontinent to cover Pakistan and Bangladesh, it also shows the variety of different provincial styles that co-existed in the various regions of India. Islamic Architecture of Indian Subcontinents richly illustrated with numerous pictures of the most notable sites and buildings, many of which have rarely been published, all taken by Federico Borromeo over several years of visits. The clear and authoritative text, written by a highly respected scholar, provides a detailed historical background to the architecture and also helps to disentangle the changes and variety shown in the numerous regional styles. This book is an invaluable source of reference for scholars of Indian architecture and Islamicists as well as for those who have travelled in the Indian subcontinent.
