The present volume of the Catalogue of Indian Going contains the description of the issues of the Mughal Emperors of Hindustan, from the foundation of the Empire by Babar mughal, Humayun, and Akbar mughal, down to its gradual absorption into the realm of the Honorable East India Company. It also includes such coins of the Company as were issued in imitation of the currency of the Moghuls. The transliteration of Arabic and Indian names of persons, places, in this volume, is in accordance with the latest official system of the Indian Government. Familiar names of places are spelt in the ordinary English way.
Shah-Jahan's reign is chiefly notable for the general tranquillity of the undiminished empire under the stable government of men like Asaf Khan, Sa'd-allah 'Allami, and 'All Mardan. Tavernier eulogizes the paternal government of the Emperor, " like a father over his family," and testifies to the security of the roads, and the just administration of the law. Shah-Jahan was a great builder, as his works at Agrah and New Dehli, and his great canal, attest to this day. A single item in his budget is two and a half crores (nearly 3,000,000) for public edifices.

Rajasthan, Delhi and Agra are the jewels in India's crown. From fairy-tale palaces and epic forts to dizzying festivals and wildlife encounters, this is India at its unbeatable Bollywood best.
