H.M Alamgir The 3rd has approved the official logo of “Mughal Library”, to be used by all media entities in all campaigns, programs and initiatives related to spreading the Mughal heritage and knowledge initiative.

The design of the logo consists of
             1. Blue Color     2.Scale Of Justice     3. The Two Lions


1. Blue Color:

The blue color in the logo defines the equality of every person under Mughal Administration.

2. Scale Of Justice:

The top of the Mughal Library logo reflects on the symbol of the famous Mughal scale of justice which defines the importance of justice in Mughal administration as the Mughal Emperors used to hold the court everyday where ordinary cases were decided by the Mughal officials and many were referred to the Emperor for his final decision. The Symbol of the scale of justice was held at a higher standard than the Emperor himself as seen in the picture below:

The Scale of Justice that is located into the Diwan-i-Khas (Hall of Private audience) in the Red fort and other was first built by the Emperor Shah Jahan the Imperial Fort in Delhi was the citadel of his new city Shahjahanabad and later on his descendant followed the same tradition.

The complex has many buildings. The Khas-Mahal (“private house”) consists of three parts. The set of three rooms facing the Diwan-i-Khas is called the Tasbih-Khana (“chamber for telling beads”) and was used for private worship by the emperor. The three rooms behind it are known as Khwabgah (“sleeping chamber”). To its south a long hall with its painted walls and ceiling and a perforated screen on west is known either as Tosh-Khana (“robe chamber”) or Baithak (“sitting room”). There exists a beautiful marble screen at the northern end of these rooms carved with a Scale of Justice suspended over a crescent surrounded with stars and clouds. There is an inscription over the southern arch of the Khwabgah, stating that the building was begun in 1048 A.H. (1639) and completed in 1058 A.H. (1648).


3. The Two Lions:

The Mughals had a great predilection for Indian fauna. Muraqqa (single-page) paintings with animal portraiture developed into a separate genre during the Mughal period. For the Mughals, lions symbolized power and when accompanied by a lamb or calf signified the existence of peace and justice.

The design of the Mughal Library Logo has been approved by Alamgir The 3rd and it reflects on the meaning of equality, and includes the importance of Justice system under Mughal administration as well as symbolizing power of Mughal Empire.
