Kannauj (also sometimes spelled as Qannauj/ Qanooj) is one of India's most ancient cities. It was a centre of Dharmic civilisation ( Hindu and Buddhist) and was also one of the first cities in India to be inhabited by Muslims.

Dharmic civilisation took a backseat as Muslims became governors of Kannauj and the city became an important political centre. But did there develop a Muslim civilisation in Kannauj ? I have found some scant references but I would be very grateful if somebody could give me reference to the Muslim past of Kannauj.

Thanks in advance.
