The Jaisalmer fort known as Sonar Quila or the Golden Fort rises from the sand and merges with the golden hues of the desert ambience. One of the very few “living forts” in the world, as nearly one fourth of the old city’s population still resides within the fort. For the better part of its 800-year history, the fort was the city of Jaisalmer. The first settlements outside the fort walls, to accommodate the growing population of Jaisalmer, are said to have come up in the 17th century.

Indo-Islamic Architecture

INDO-ISLAMIC ARCHITECTURE IVIndo-Islamic architecture is the architecture of the Indian subcontinent produced for Islamic patrons and purposes. Despite an earlier Muslim presence in India, its main history begins in 1193. Both the Delhi Sultans and the Mughal dynasty that succeeded them came from Central Asia via Afghanistan, and were used to a Central Asian style of Islamic architecture that largely derived from Iran. The types and forms of large buildings required by Muslim elites, with mosques and tombs much the most common, were very different from those previously built in India. The exteriors of both were very often topped by large domes, and made extensive use of arches. Both of these features were hardly used in native Indian styles. Types of building essentially consisted of a single large space under a high dome. Islamic buildings initially had to adapt the skills of a workforce trained in earlier Indian traditions to their own designs. Unlike most of the Islamic world, where brick tended to predominate, India had highly skilled builders very well used to producing stone masonry of extremely high quality. As well as the main style developed in Delhi and later Mughal centres, a variety of regional styles grew up, especially where there were local Muslim rulers. By the Mughal period, generally agreed to represent the peak of the style, this was especially the case in forts and palace architecture.

QUTUB COMPLEX VI

Indo-Islamic architecture has left influences on modern Indian architecture, and was the main influence on the so-called Indo-Saracenic Revival architecture introduced in the last century of the British Raj. Both religious and non religious buildings are influenced by Indo-Islamic architecture. The style includes influences from Indian, Islamic, Persian, Central Asian, Arabic and Ottoman Turkish architecture. The start of the Delhi Sultanate in 1206 under Qutb al-Din Aibak introduced a large Islamic state to India, using Central Asian styles. The important Qutb Complex in Delhi was begun under Muhammad of Ghor, by 1199, and continued under Qutb al-Din Aibak and later sultans. The Quwwat-ul-Islam Mosque was the first structure. Beside it is the extremely tall Qutb Minar, a minaret or victory column, whose original four stages reach 73 meters (with a final stage added later). Its closest comparator is the 62-metre all-brick Minaret of Jam in Afghanistan, of around 1190, a decade or so before the probable start of the Delhi tower. Another very early mosque, begun in the 1190s, is the Adhai Din Ka Jhonpra in Ajmer, Rajasthan, built for the same Delhi rulers, again with corbelled arches and domes.

BULAND DARWAZA

The Mughal Empire, an Islamic empire that lasted in India from 1526 to 1857 left a mark on Indian architecture that was a mix of Islamic, Persian, Turkish, Arabic, Central Asian and native Indian architecture. A major aspect of Mughal Architecture is the symmetrical nature of buildings and courtyards. Akbar, who ruled in the 16th century, made major contributions to Mughal architecture. He systematically designed forts and towns in similar symmetrical styles that blended Indian styles with outside influences. The gate of a fort Akbar designed at Agra exhibits the Assyrian gryphon, Indian elephants, and birds. During the Mughal era design elements of Islamic-Persian architecture were fused with and often produced playful forms of the Indian art.

Major Examples of Mughal Architecture includes

The Taj Mahal, Sikandara (Akbar’s Tomb) and Humayun’s Tomb, Red Fort, Agra Fort, Masjid-i-Jahan Numa (Jama Mosque of Delhi), King’s Gate (Buland Darwaza) and Complex in Fatehpur Sikri and many more

MUMBAI THE VIBRANT CITY OF INDIA

MUMBAI FACEBOOK

Mumbai, still frequently referred to “Bombay”

The City that never sleeps! Pulsating, Alive, On the Move, Vibrant and Fun – this is Mumbai or as it is still frequently referred to – Bombay. The most modern city in India, it captures the spirit of the changing pace set by liberalization and modernisation. Once a cluster of seven islands, Mumbai was presented to King Charles II in 1661 as part of the dowry when he married Princess Catherine de Braganza of Portugal. Over the years, as colonialism gave way to independence, Mumbai has transformed itself into an entity with thriving markets, business houses and many different communities reflecting a cosmopolitan and trendy atmosphere rarely seen elsewhere. On the surface, it represents the ever-changing face of today’s India — the old coupled with the dynamic new, and yet at its very core, the heart of the city is steeped in Indian customs and values

ANDAMAN AND NICOBAR ISLANDS

ANDAMAN IV

Andaman and Nicobar Islands is an archipelago of over 570 tropical islands, of which only 36 are inhabited. Radhanagar beach at Havelock Island was bestowed with the title of ‘Asia’s Best Beach’ in 2004 by the TIME magazine. It is also listed as world’s 7th most spectacular beach in the world on TIME magazine list. Barren Island which is about 135 km (84 mi) north-east of the territory’s capital, Port Blair, is the only confirmed active volcano in South Asia. The Andaman Islands have been inhabited for several thousand years, at the very least. The earliest archaeological evidence yet documented goes back some 2,200 years; however, the indications from genetic, cultural and isolation studies suggest that the islands may have been inhabited as early as the Middle Paleolithic. The Andamans are theorised to be a key stepping stone in a great coastal migration of humans from Africa via the Arabian Peninsula, along the coastal regions of the Indian mainland and towards Southeast Asia, Japan and Oceania. The name of the Andaman Islands is ancient. Italian traveller, Niccolò de’ Conti (c. 1440), mentioned the islands and said that the name means “Island of Gold”
