This illustrated book offers a detailed study on the subject and is a useful book for students of Architecture.
The association of the Muslims with India dates back to the twelfth century AD. This long association produced far-reaching effects, among other things, on the country's architecture also. The saga of Indo-Islamic architecture is a living proof of the synthesis and fusion of what was best in two of the great building traditions of the world, the Indian and the Islamic.
The large number of photos of various mosques, minars and minarets with exquisite workmanship add vitality to the text.
