Connaught Place



Fig. 129: CONNAUGHT PLACE, The British constructed Central New Delhi with its well-planned layout, just prior to the onset of World War I. Comnaught Place, once the commercial heart of the British Raj, is today a busy tourist area that bears little resemblance to the thatched-roof colonial district it used to be; home to a wide variety of international shops and restaurants, attracting the town's Western visitors.

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.
