When northern India was under Mughal control, the Deccan plateau of the south was ruled by a series of Muslim sultans, among whom the Adil Shahi sultans of Bijapur (reigned circa 15571687) were prominent. The Deccan sultans were Sh'iah Muslims and allied themselves with the Sh'iah Safavid rulers of Iran, while the Mughals were of more orthodox Sunni affiliation.
