In the heart of India's Deccan Plateau lies the ruined city of Firuzabad, the royal palace and second capital of Sultan Firuz Shah Bahmani. Built in the early years of the fifteenth century, the city displays a remarkably unified conception of Indo-Muslim architecture. But Firuzabad slipped into oblivion shortly after the death of its patron, and has since remained virtually unnoticed by archaeologists and art historians alike. In the present volume art historian George Michell and Indian historian Richard Eaton have collaborated in producing the first detailed architectural and historical analysis of this fascinating but little-known legacy of Indo-Muslim culture.
