50 minutes, 2006 (Films for the Humanities & Sciences)

Muslims arrived in India the same year they entered Spain – and by the end of the 13th century ruled nearly all of the county. This program travels across India by way of Iran, Pakistan, and the Maldives to examine the rich Islamic heritage of the region. The program also observes the Muslim way of life on the subcontinent as it exists today. Sites of note include the Taj Mahal, the Golkonda Fort ruins, and the Charminar monument.
