Jaunpur was then a major center of Urdu and Sufi knowledge and culture. The Sharqi dynasty was known for its excellent communal relations between Muslims and Hindus, perhaps stemming from the fact that the Sharqis themselves were originally indigenous converts to Islam, as opposed to descendants of Persians or Afghans. Jaunpur's independence came to an end in 1480, when the city was conquered by Sikander Lodhi, the Sultan of Delhi. The Sharqi kings attempted for several years to retake the city, but ultimately failed.Although many of the Sharqi monuments were destroyed when the Lodhis took the city, several important mosques remain, most notably the Atala Masjid, Jama Masjid (now known as th...

Akbar on his visit to Jaunpur enjoyed water sports on the river Gumpti while others like Babur, Humayun and Aurangzeb were quite impressed by its splendour and did their best to restore its glory.Sultan Firoz Shah TughlaqStanding halfway between Delhi and Bengal, it is an important halting point by the river side.

Shraqi Architecture is unique in many ways. Two things continued to make Sharqi architecture pre-eminent. One was the assiduous patronage of the Sharqi rulers, and the other the deep artistic traditions of the local inhabitants. The Sharqis employed local artisans, who were Jain and Hindu, and who grafted their own rich traditions upon the Muslim ones. After the fall of the Tughluqs and the invasion of Timur at Delhi, the building operations came to a standstill. Delhi artisans were invited to take service in the rising provincial centres, especially Jaunpur, where the patronage of the rulers, as has already been said, also attracted and encouraged them. “The Kings of the East” (Sharqi) ...
