Synopsis: Between the twelfth and the mid-nineteenth centuries, most of the Indian subcontinent was under Muslim domination, giving rise to a unique architectural blend of Islamic, Turkish, and Persian influences. This scholarly work provides a comprehensive view of this architectural fusion, explaining in depth the key monuments of each period and region, including the unforgettable Taj-Mahal at Agra, Homâyun’s tomb at Delhi, and the Shalimar gardens in Lahore, Pakistan. This sweeping panorama of the history of architecture on the Indian subcontinent redresses an important lack of coverage of the subject of Muslim architecture.
About the Author: Yves Porter, professor of Iranian Studies at the University of Aix-en-Provence, specializes in Muslim art. He has published The Art of the Islamic Tile and Palaces and Gardens of Persia. Gérard Degeorges, architect, professor, and civil engineer, is a widely traveled photographer of the Islamic world.
