Bird's Eye View of the Jama Masjid



Bird's Eye View of the Jama Masjid, attributed to the Lucknow artist, Mihr Chnad. While the details are sometimes inaccurate (the asymmetrical arches of the iwan for instance), yet the realistic view of the city includes the walls, the Ajmeri and the Lahori gates linked by the Lal kuan Bazaar, the Fatehpuri Masjid and the western end of the Chandni Chowk with the Golden Mosque of Roshanuddaula.

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.
