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 riverine island-town of Srirangapatna, and a brief historical background;
the development of the island’s architectural heritage; and,
the architectural features of the Srirangapatna Fort and its monuments.
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.
