How was the music and dance in the Delhi Sultanate?

User Avatar
The Delhi Sultanate is a period of time that covers five dynasties from 1206 to 1526. During these years, Hindistani music and Carnatic music, both subgenres of Indian classical music, were beginning to evole. Hindistani evolved from Vedic ritual chants in the North, and it was influenced by Persian and Islamic music. Carnatic evolved in the South with an emphasis on vocal music. Dance during this period included Sattriya, a classical Indian dance tradition, which origianted in 15th century Assam.

Who built Qutub Minar?

User Avatar
Qutub minar was built by Qutbuddn Aibak till the first storey then he died and it was completed by Iltutmish. This is the Muslim version of the history. The real history is different. The township adjoining the Kutub Minar is known as Mehrauli. That is a Sanskrit word Mihira-awali. It signifies the town- ship where the well known astronomer Mihira of Vikramaditya's court lived along with his helpers, mathemati- cians and technicians. They used the so-called Kutub tower as an observation post for astronomical study. Around the tower were pavilions dedicated to the 27 constel- lations of the Hindu Zodiac. Kutubuddin has left us an inscription that he destroyed these pavilions. But he has not said that he raised any tower. The ravaged temple was renamed as Kuwat-ul-Islam mosque. Stones dislodged from the so-called Kutub Minar have Hindu images on one side with Arabic lettering on the other. Those stones have now been removed to the Museum. They clearly show that Muslim invaders used to remove the stone- dressing of Hindu buildings, turn the stones inside out to hide the image facial and inscribe Arabic lettering on the new frontage. Bits of Sanskrit inscriptions can still be deciphered in the premises on numerous pillars and walls. Numerous images still adorn the cornices though disfigured.
