The Islamic architecture of Punjab has not so far been studied with the seriousness it deserves. The books on architecture of the Indian subcontinent take up just a few monuments from Lahore or Multan and that is all. It is believed that the architecture of medieval Punjab was limited to these two centres only. But this is not the real story. The whole land of Punjab is studded with monuments. This book is an outcome of the authors extensive researches on the subject extended over more than three decades. It covers a detailed account of 141 extant monuments of Punjab comprising thirteen sarais eight bridges seven baolis six tanks thirty-three kos-minars one fortified enclosure two gardens two forts one mansion one takht forty-seven tombs eighteen mosques and two Idgahs. Besides these extant structures the work also traces available information about 103 extinct monuments which included seven sarais three bridges seven baolis one tank six kos-minars six gardens thirteen forts three mansions one hammam twenty-five tombs twenty-eight mosques and three Idgahs. In this way the book is a complete document on the five centuries of the built heritage of Punjab.ISLAMIC ARCHITECTURE OF PUBJAB (1206-1707), Author: Subhash Parihar, Category: Book, ISBN: 9788173055393, Condition: New."
