Book Description New Delhi: Galgotia, 1996. Condition: Sehr gut. XI, 179 S. Umschlag berieben, sonst gutes Exemplar. - Islamic Architecture in India covers the impact of resurgent Islamic ideas and techniques on the established civilization of the Hindu kingdoms in India. It examines the development of Islamic architecture in India as a fascinating process of synthesis between the two seemingly divergent building systems - that of the Hindus and the Muslims. The author shows how the indefati-guable Indian craftsmen all over the subcontinent blended the exotic . sculptural traditions of Hindu architecture and the austere but structurally advanced techniques of the Muslim builders to produce a truly unique Indo-Islamic style. The book examines in detail the early Hindu-Muslim 'joint venture' at Delhi, the flowering of the Islamic style in various other regions of India, and finally, the impact of the personality of each Mughal ruler on the architecture of his times. The text is accompanied by over 230 black and white and colour illustrations comprising photographs, drawings and line sketches.
