This volume is the first to offer an overall survey of the architectural and artistic heritage of the Deccan Sultanate and to place this legacy within its historical context. The cultural links which existed between the Deccan and the Middle East, for example, are clearly discernible in Deccani architecture and paintings and a remarkable collection of photographs, many of which have never been published before, testify to such influences. The book will be a source of inspiration to all those interested in the rich and diverse culture of India.
