hello .. I am an under grad student of architecture in India.I am particularly interested in Islamic Architecture. what i particularly wanted to know was if there are any specific notions that play important role in Place making. One of them is obviously religious but how is it related to architecture and what type of elements and space does it generate inorder to convey the spirituality?.. i would be extremely grateful to receive any help regarding this

Oh, I understand, Shradda; so you might go back to the roots:

e.g.: Formal Structure in Indian Architecture, by Klaus Herdeg:

http://www.amazon.com/Formal-Structure-Indian-Architecture-Herdeg/dp/0847810488

or, e.g., from the same author:

http://www.archnet.org/library/documents/one-document.jsp?document_id=6195

and so on
