Chapter Summary

This chapter briefly discusses the sites and monuments of Indian Islamic architecture. It includes Ahmadabad, Bharoch, Bidar, Bihar, Bijapur, Champaner, Chanderi, Daulatabad, Delhi, Dhar, Etawa, Gawilgarh, Gulbarga, Hampi, Hansi, Hyderabad, Jalor, Jaunpur, Kalpi, Kalyani, Kanauj, Kandahar, Mahur, Maner, Mathura, Meerut, Mudgal, Nagaur, Naldurg, Narnala, Narnaul, and Thalner. The chapter mentions two aberrant structures, as they probably represent an extraneous influence in Gujarati architecture. These are two monumental tombs, one of Darya Khan, once a minister of Ma?mud Shah, and a tomb on the Sarkhej road known as A'zam- Mu'azzam, popularly declared to be the builders of Sarkhej. From the architectural point of view the monuments of Dhar are important only as illustration of the earliest phase of the Malwa style, one of the characteristic provincial styles of Indian Islamic architecture.
