Overview for Mughal Architecture and Gardens

Mughal Architecture and Gardens reveals the grandeur of what is undoubtedly one of the most impressive groups of monuments and gardens ever to be ascribed to a single royal lineage. Innovative and inspirational, these sixteenth and seventeenth century constructions demonstrate the staggering wealth and power of those responsible for their creation, notably the emperors Akbar, Jahangir and Shah Jahan.

Mughal architecture is a remarkable hybrid that fuses building forms, techniques and decorative schemes imported from Iran and Central Asia with long-established Indian materials and techniques. Whether it is the Taj Mahal in Agra, the Red Fort in Delhi, the pleasure pavilions of Fatehpur Sikri or the resorts of Kashmir, the results are both structurally innovative and aesthetically spectacular, a testament to the genius of Indian masons and craftsmen.

This lavish volume documents over 100 Mughal monuments and gardens in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, supported by specially commissioned building plans, site layouts and city maps. Sumptuously illustrated with more than 250 stunning colour photographs by Amit Pasricha, one of the most talented architectural photographers working in India today, and with a text by renowned architectural historian George Michell, this magnificent book is the quintessential guide to Mughal architecture and garden design.
