Islamic architecture can be seen all around the world. India is one such country where Islamic art and architecture is indeed very prominent.

Often, in foreign discourses, the discussion about Islamic architecture in India is confined to Taj Mahal at Agra and the Jama Masjid of Delhi. However, there is much more to it: be it the northern part of the country, or the coastal areas of the south, or the Deccan plateau region in central India, Islamic architectural marvels are present everywhere. 

In this amazing video, renowned photographer Benoy Behl discusses some of the most prominent and noteworthy specimens of Islamic architecture in India.
