Royal Tombs of India, the first book of its kind on the Islamic royal tombs of India, focuses on the Tughluq and Lodi Tombs, Qutb Shahi Tombs and Mughal Tombs (those of Humayun, Akbar, Aurangzeb, Jahangir and Nur Jahan as well as Bibi-ka-Maqbara, and the Taj Mahal). It also discusses the controversy surrounding the location of Baburís tomb. These tombs are among the most magnificent pieces of Islamic architecture and grandeur. The existence of Hindu and Persian Safavid influences in the pre- Mughal and Mughal tombs is a central theme of the book. Different characteristics of pre-Mughal and Mughal architecture are analyzed in examining these influences. The tombs are described in the broader historical and architectural context of the reigns of Tughluq, Lodi, Qutb Shahi and Mughal dynasties. Besides describing the tombs and dynasties, the book traces the history of royal tombs: from the ancient Egyptian pyramids, the Greek/Roman mausoleums and the Chinese royal tombs to the Islamic tombs of Central Asia, Pakistan and India.It provides a rare insight into lesser known facts about the history and evolution of tomb architecture. Printed Pages: 152 with 87 colour illustrations and 10 drawings.
