Sources and Determinants of the Architecture Fatehpur Sikri, edited by Michael Brand and Glenn D. Lowry,

Title:Sources and Determinants of the Architecture Fatehpur Sikri, edited by Michael Brand and Glenn D. Lowry,
Author:Nath, R.

Abstract:The sources and determinants of the architecture at Fatehpur-Sikri can best be ascertained by studying the architecture itself. Various artistic traditions converged at Fatehpur-Sikri and these were reconciled through the expertise of Akbar's artisans and the power of his own dominant personality. When Akbar decided to found a town at Fatehpur-Sikri, he had no texts before him. The theory was more or less represented by the artistic traditions of the salats which he drew from two main sources: the Jammu-Chambal region and the Malwa-Gujarat-Rajasthan area. The architectural style was thus influenced by the anonymous artisans drawn from these regions and Akbar's own enlightened patronage of the arts.
