Seven Cities Of Delhi
The 'Slave' dynasty of Qutubuddin was followed by the line of Khilji
rulers . Among the six rulers of the Khilji dynasty, Allauddin Khilji is
the most well - known -who extended his dominion down southern India
too, and created the third city of Delhi, Siri.The Saljuqian influences are
the most remarkable feature in the buildings from this period.This came
about as craftsmen from the Saljuqian dynasty in west Asia reeling
under Mongol invasions took refuge in the Delhi court and contributed
to its architecture. A large reservoir called Hauz Khas was another
accomplishment of city of Siri. A madrasa (college) was also created
here by later rulers. Hauz Khas today is a complex of chic boutiques
against the ruins of an ancient fort while Siri is represented by
stretches of thick stone walls.
