For over three centuries the Mughal dynasty produced some of the world’s greatest architecture. Emerging originally from Afghanistan, the Mughals celebrated their victory over much of South Asia with an aggressive building campaign. The result of this effort generated an architecture that not only harkened back to their origins in Central Asia, but imaginatively conflated the architecture of the conquered Hindus with architectural symbols of Islam.
