With the arrival of Islam in Indian sub-continent new era of art and architecture begins. Indian architecture took a new shape with the advent of Islamic rule in India. New elements were introduced into the Indian architecture which include the use of shapes, instructional art using decorative lettering or calligraphy, inlay decoration and use of coloured marble, painted plaster and brilliantly glazed tiles. The Islamic architecture was arcuate. They adopted the certain scientific and mechanical formulae which were derived by experience of other civilizations, in their construction in india. Islamic elements of architecture had already passed through different experimental phases in other countries as Egypt, Iran, Syria and Iraq before these were introduced in India. The Indo-Islamic monuments were typical mortar-masonary works formed of dressed stones.


Rajasthan is a land where life in all its aspects comes emblazoned in the brightest of colors. Rajasthan is a name of collective and classical denomination of that portion of India, which was the abode of the Rajputs.' In the familiar dialect of this region it is termed as Rajwara, but by the move refined Raithana, corrupted to Rajputana.2 Due to paramountcy of the Rajputs in this region, Britishers called it Rajputana, in the terms of Mughal language, Persian, the plural of Rajputs is Rajputs. It is most probable that Rajputana word was derived from Rajputan. George Thomas was the first person who termed this region as Rajputana in 1800 A.D. even the famous historian of Rajasthan, Col. James Tod used the term Rajasthan for this part of land lying to the west of Yamuna and he paid high tributes to warriors of this land.
