Bandyopadhyay, Soumyen. Architecture and Urban Development of the Deccan Sultanates: Southern Islamic Centres Beyond the Deccan (Lecture 5). 2021. PowerPoint Presentation.
Consisting of eight lectures, the series, Architecture and Urban Development of the Deccan Sultanates, begins with an overview of the evolution of Indo-Islamic architecture and the manner in which the newly introduced social, cultural, and political ideals and religious beliefs and the existing Indian traditions interacted and shaped the architectural style. In this lecture, you will learn about:
the brief history and architecture of the ports and towns of Coromandel and Malabar, demonstrating the rich and diverse architectural styles, independent from that of North India and the Deccan Sultanates;
the spread of Islam through trade to South India and its influences on regional architectural and cultural styles; and,
Islamic monuments of these areas, their history, key facts and impact on the local culture.
This series of lectures was prepared in collaboration between the Centre for the Study of Architecture and Cultural Heritage of India, Arabia and Maghreb (ArCHIAM), based at the University of Liverpool, UK, and the Aga Khan Trust for Culture Education Programme.
