Architecture under Lodhi Dynasty

  • Only works commissioned by Sayyid and Lodi rulers were tombs (maqbaras). Many of these are found in the neighbourhood of Delhi.
  • Double domes were a significant development in architecture at this time. It was made out of an interior hollow dome.
  • All the Lodhi rulers were buried in the Bagh-i-Jud, known today as Lodhi gardens.
  • Tombs were of two types:
    • Orthogonal tombs: Belonged to royalty
    • Square tombs: Belonged to nobles
