With the establishment of the Delhi Sultanate in A.D 1206 a new phase ushered in the cultural development of India. The Turks who came to India towards the beginning of 13th C.A.D., had not only a well-defined faith in Islam to which they were deeply attached, they also had definite ideas of Government, Arts, and Architecture etc. The Hindus had also developed their own style, although their concepts and designs differed from those of the Muslims. A synthesis of these two types, however, was soon evolved due to a number of factors. The Muslims after firmly establishing themselves in India employed Hindu master craftsman for designing and constructing their buildings. These craftsmen naturally introduced the characteristics of Hindu architecture like solidity and grace, while adopting Muslim features like arches, domes, minarets, geometrical designs etc.
