This volume presents the research of scholars from different disciplines who have a mutual interest in Mughal gardens. Their contributions cover the aesthetic and horticultural as well as social, economic, religious, and political dimensions of Mughal gardens. Based on these studies, we now understand far more fully the gardens, architecture, and works of art that so visibly embody Mughal cultural attitudes.
