Arab invaders arrived in the Indo-Pakistani subcontinent in the 8th century, but the foundation of the sultanate of Delhi in the 12th century marked the beginning of the era of monumental building as a display of power. The sultanates and the Great Mughals left an architectural legacy that includes masterpieces such as the Qutb Minar and the Taj Mahal. This volume is a chronological account of the major phases of Islamic architecture across the subcontinent, illustrated with superb photographs by Gerard Degeorge. Slip- cased.
