Shahjahanabad (Delhi) — Territory under the control of Mughals,
Shahjahanabad was the capital city of the Mughal Empire in India, established by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in 1638. The city was named after him and was located in present-day Old Delhi.
Shahjahanabad was a major political, cultural, and commercial center during the Mughal period, and it continued to be so even after the decline of the Mughal Empire. The city was home to some of the most magnificent buildings and monuments of the Mughal era, including the Red Fort, Jama Masjid, and Chandni Chowk.
The Mughal Emperors ruled over Shahjahanabad and the surrounding territories for centuries, until the British East India Company took control of Delhi in 1803. Even after the British took over, Shahjahanabad continued to be an important city, and the British made significant additions and changes to the city’s architecture and infrastructure.
Today, Shahjahanabad remains an important cultural and historical site in India, attracting millions of tourists each year to explore its rich Mughal heritage and experience its vibrant markets, temples, and mosques.
