The Nizamuddin area is today recognized as one of the densest ensemble’s of medieval Islamic buildings anywhere in India. Almost every dynasty to have ruled Delhi has built here; the Il Bari Turks (also known as the Slave dynasty), the Khaljis, the Tughlaqs, the Lodis, the Surs and, of course, the Mughals built some of the +inest buildings of their reigns in this small geographical area that stood along the River Yamuna, until the river receded eastwards in the nineteenth century.
