From Slave to Sultan....a journey of a lifetime....

The pre-Mughal architecture of the Delhi Sultanate.

The Original "Mamluk (Slave) Dynasty" of Delhi.
************************************************************
Shams-ud-Din Iltutmish, or Altamash, (Persian: شمس الدین التتمش ) was the third Sultan of Delhi, and the only other significant ruler, besides the founder Qutb ud din Aibak, of the Slave Dynasty.

After the establishment of the Delhi Sultanate, Multan became its western frontier. In the beginning it was governed by Nasir-ud-Din Qabacha, then captured by Jalal-al-Din Manakabarni and finally annexed by Shams-ud-Din Iltutmish. Iltutmish was the first king to appoint a woman as his official successor named Razia Sultan.

He completed the famous Qutub Minar in Delhi, started by the founder of the dynasty, Qutb ud din Aibak.

He introduced the silver tanka in the currency system
