Silent Splendour: Palaces of the Deccan, 14th-19th Centuries

Helen Philon (Editor)
Synopsis Silent Splendour : Palaces of the Deccan, 14th-19th Centuries examines the private and ceremonial structures found in the five principal dynastic capitals and administrative centres of the Deccan during the 14th-19th centuries. The Indo-Islamic courtly cultures of the different dynasties that ruled the Deccan, with their surrounding garden areas and water resources, have been considered as one entity for the first time. The authors offer much new data and interpretations based on recent research. The articles and photographs offer a fresh look at both familiar and unfamiliar buildings, capturing the architectural inventiveness and dazzling details of these now silent but splendid palaces.
