Introduction to Delhi Sultanate:
The Delhi Sultanate or Sulthanath-e-Hind or Sulthanath-e-Dilli implies the Turkic and Afghan origin dynasties that ruled India from 1210 to 1526 with their capital at Delhi. The Delhi Sultanate includes:
- Slave dynasty (1206-90)
- Khilji dynasty (1290-1320)
- Tughlaq dynasty (1320-1413)
- Sayyid dynasty (1414-51)
- Lodi Sultanate (1451-1526)
The Delhi Sultanate caused massive destruction and demolition of ancient Hindu temples of South Asia, as well as led to the emergence of Indo-Islamic architecture. In 1526, the Delhi Sultanate fell and was succeeded by the Mughal Empire.
