Mubarak Bagh built by Sir Dabid Ochterlony



Fig. 37: MUBARAK BAGH BUILT BY SIR DAVID OCHTERLONY, studio of Mazhar Ali Khan, c. 1840, From Metcalte's Delhi Book. The Mubarak Bagh of Gieneral Sir David Ochterlony (1758-1825) was built four miles to the north of Shahjahanabad and was named after Ochterlony's senior wife, Mubarak Begum, who inherited it after his death. The central portion under the dome is surmounted by a cross and seems to have served as a model for that of Skinner's St. James's church. Ochterlony intended it for his tomb, but in the event died at Meerut where he was buried. Watercolour, folio size 25.8 x 19 cm. British Library, London, Add.Or:5475 f. 68.

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.
