Summary "The Muslim kingdoms of the Deccan plateau in peninsular India flourished from the fourteenth to the eighteenth centuries. Ruling from their fortified capitals, the sultans built sumptuous palaces, mosques and tombs and patronised artists who produced outstanding paintings, textiles and objects. Many of these buildings and some works of art still survive as testimony to the remarkable talents of their builders and craftsmen. This volume is the first to offer an overall survey of these varied architectural and artistic traditions and to place them within their historical and cultural context."--BOOK JACKET
