Slide 13: Power of architecture Panch Mahal, Fatehpur Sikri The historical value of a monument would depend upon its association with a great king or a saint. Rulers tried to show their power and position through the monuments. Islamic ‘power architecture’ begins with military and defensive architecture in the form of forts with imposing gateways. Akbar built the city of Fatehpur Sikri with its different buildings to show his independence and power. Slide 14: Red Fort, New Delhi Slide 15: Shalimar Gardens, Kashmir Slide 16: Building Materials The materials used for constructing monuments differed from region to region. The earliest buildings in most parts of India were built of mud and timber. These buildings did not survive for many years. Later buildings were made of stone. White marble and red sandstone were famous in North India. In South India temples and palaces were built of granite and sandstone. Buildings made of brick can also been seen in many parts of India. Slide 17: Finance, Labour & Rules for Monuments Only kings and well-to-do traders could afford to make grand monuments. Labour and specialists had to be brought from all over the world. Labourers and artisans were paid according to their work. Artisans and craftsmen organised themselves into guilds or associations. The guilds helped members against exploitation by cruel kings and also provided loans and technical advice to the members.
