Bastion of the Lal Bagh, Dacca



The Lal Bagh Fort in Dhaka was begun around 1677 by Prince Muhammad Azam, son of the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb. It was never completed. One of the principal attractions in the Old City of Dhaka, it has three storeys and contains many buildings including the tomb of Pari Bibi or 'Fairy Lady' (the wife of a Mughal governor of Bengal) and a huge mosque. This etching was based on plate 10 from Charles D'Oyly's 'Antiquities of Dacca'.

Very good information.


The Mughal Images immediately took a much greater interest in realistic portraiture than was typical of Persian miniatures. Animals and plants were the main subject of many miniatures for albums and were more realistically depicted. To upload your images click here.
