Deccan Sultanates – IAS Synopsis
The term Deccan Sultanate is used to refer to the five late-medieval kingdoms—on the Deccan Plateau between the Krishna River and the Vindhya Range—that were ruled by Muslim dynasties: namely Ahmadnagar, Berar, Bidar, Bijapur, and Golconda.
Although the five sultanates were all ruled by Muslims, their founders were not necessarily Muslim : the Ahmadnagar Sultanate was of Hindu-Brahmin origins; the Berar Sultanate was founded by a Kanarese-Hindu convert; the Bidar Sultanate was founded by a Georgian slave; the Bijapur Sultanate was founded by a Georgian slave purchased by Mahmud Gawan; and the Golconda Sultanate was of Turkmen origin.
