 DESCRIPTION
spacer
The World Heritage Complex of the Qutub in New Delhi is home to several magnificent monuments that are classic examples of early Muslim architecture in India. The complete history and engineering of the archaeological structures at this site are explained in the present volume. The history of Delhi and the evolution of Indo-Islamic architecture is introduced briefly. The Quwwat-ul-Islam mosque, the famous 1600-year old Gupta-period corrosion resistant Iron Pillar located in its courtyard and the Qutub Minar are discussed in great detail. Other archaeological monuments described include Iltutmish's Tomb, the Alai Darwaza and Allaudin's Madrassa. The Lal Kot area is elaborated in the final section. Fascinating historical anecdotes and stories related to the complex are presented. All archaeological excavations at this site are reviewed to highlight significant finds. Profusely illustrated with maps, line drawings and photographs, the book embodies the latest researches on the subject and will fascinate not only the scholar and serious student but also the lay reader.
