Passage

Delhi sultanate, principal Muslim sultanate in north India from the 13th to the 16th century. Its creation owed much to the campaigns of Muizz al-Din Muhammad ibn Sam (Muhammad of Ghar; brother of Sultan Ghiyas al-Din of Ghur) and his lieutenant Qutb al-Din Aibak between 1175 and 1206 and particularly to victories at the battles of Taraori in 1192 and Chandawar in 119

The Ghurid soldiers of fortune in India did not sever their political connection with Ghur (now Ghowr, in present Afghanistan) until Sul tan Iltutmish (reigned 1211 - 36) had made his permanent capital at

Delhi, had repulsed rival attempts to take over the Ghurid conquests in India, and had withdrawn his forces from contact with the Mongol armies, which by the 1220S had conquered Afghanistan. Iltutmish also gained firm control of the main urban strategic centres of the North Indian Plain, from which he could keep in check the refractory Rajput chiefs. After Iltutmish՚s death, a decade of factional struggle was followed by nearly 40 years of stability under Ghiyas al-Din Balban, Sul tan in 1266 - 87. During this period Delhi remained on the defensive against the Mongols and undertook only precautionary measures against the Rajputs.
