The Empire of the Great Mughals: History, Art and Culture

Front Cover
Sang-E-Meel Pub., 2005 - Art, Mogul - 352 pages
The Mughal Empire (1526-1857) has long been viewed as a wonderland of unimaginable treasure. Annemarie Schimmel describes its rise to political, military, and economic ascendancy, the development of its power and splendor, and finally its gradual disintegration. This is a fascinating portrait of an advanced oriental culture, whose historical and cultural legacy -- such as Mughal paintings and the marble-clad Taj Mahal in Agra -- still inspires universal admiration today.
