India is the country with the second largest number of Muslims in the world and largest Muslim-minority population in the world. Trade relations have existed between Arabia and the Indian subcontinent since ancient times. Even in the pre-Islamic era, Arab traders used to visit Indian coastal regions, which linked them with the ports of Southeast Asia. Cheraman  Juma Mosque in Kerala is thought to be the first mosque in Indian subcontinent built in 629 CE by Hazrat Malik Deenar.

For centuries of migration of intelligentsia, mystics, traders, artists, and artisans into the Indian subcontinent and their interaction with the Indians, who had distinct religious beliefs and established notions about art, architecture, and literature, resulted in the creation of a new composite civilization. The Indo–Islamic culture is the name given to this civilization. Over the time, there has been significant integration of cultures across India and all the groups and communities have played a notable role in social, economic and, political development of India it is the “Cultural Heritage of India”

One of the most enduring achievements of Indian civilization is undoubtedly its architecture. Indian architecture is as old as the history of the civilization. The earliest remains of recognizable building activity in India dates back to the Indus Valley cities. Indian architecture, which has evolved through centuries, is the result of socio-economic and geographical conditions. Indian architecture, belonging to different periods of history, bears the stamp of respective periods.  From the advent of Islam in the Indian subcontinent in the 7th and 8th centuries, during these migrations, Muslims acquired several characteristics of indigenous cultures and traditions and incorporated them into their building techniques. The mediaeval period saw significant advancements in the art of architecture, several new architectural characteristics and methods were introduced. This period’s development of architectural style is known as Indo-Islamic Architecture, or Indian architecture inspired by architectural styles of Persia, Arabia and Central Asia. Neither purely Islamic nor strictly Hindu, the Indo-Islamic style was a hybrid of the two. It was, in reality, a fusion of Islamic and Indian architectural components. 

From the establishment of Delhi Sultanate in the beginning of 13th century to Mughal Empire lasted in mid-19th century, many rulers made contributions to Indo-Islamic architecture. They systematically designed monuments complexes, minaret, forts, palaces, tombs, mausoleum and towns which are unique examples of ultimate architecture. Monuments and towns developed for centuries throughout the ever-changing extent of empires in Medieval India. Currently there are around 40 world heritage sites in India, nominated by UNESCO for outstanding universal value to architectural works, cultural and natural heritage
