Muslim conquerors erected impressive monuments and religious sites in Hindu India which continue to be a source of fascination. This lecture uncovers the most important pilgrimage sites, tombs, and palaces of the Islamic Indian subcontinent, considering both widely known structures and those known only to insiders. At the same time, participants will learn more about the history of Muslim India [home to 140 million Muslims and home to the world’s third largest Muslim population] and the complex, continuing conflict be - t ween Islam and Hinduism.
