This volume brings together twelve studies, written between 1982 and 1997, on Mughal art. Analyzing the form and content of the artwork in its context, the author offers a new interpretation of the Mughal Gardens; the Taj Majal; palaces at Agra, Delhi, and Lahore; and the Padshahnama.
The idea of assembling a selection of my essays in a single volume arose from discussions with Sunil Kumar, who has long complained about my predilection for publishing.
Mughal architecture is the distinctive Indo-Islamic architectural style that developed in northern and central India under the patronage of Mughal emperors from the 16th to the 18th century. It is a remarkably symmetrical and decorative amalgam of Persian, Turkish, and Indian architecture and imperial ideologies are the ideas, concepts, explanations, and justifications for empire which imperial societies have articulated for themselves.

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.
