Indigenous Characteristics of Mughal Architecture

 
R. Nath (Author)
Synopsis It deals, extremely briefly, with the evolutionary process of Mughal Architecture, practically from Babur to Shah Jehan (1526 to 1658 AD). Instead of being an exotic phenomenon, as it is largely misunderstood, Mughal Architecture, like the Gupta art, was deeply rooted in the soil and it grew and developed not only on indigenous forms and techniques, but also on its concepts, customs and beliefs. It was owing to the decisive participation of native sources, in its development, that such a wonderful monument as the Taj Mahal could be built in India, and nowhere else. The Land, the People and the Culture have made it what it is, which is why it is so diametrically different from any other art of Islam. Written in a simple language, without the research jargon, and adequately illustrated, the book gives an authoritative appraisal of the subject with landmark examples.

About the author

R. Nath

Prof Ram Nath (born: 1933) was educated at St. John’s College, Agra. He passed his M.A. (History) in I Dn with first position. He did his Ph.D. and D.Litt. on Mughal monuments of Agra, Fatehpur Sikri and Delhi from the Agra University. He taught at Agra College as Lecturer (1965-75) and University of Rajasthan, Jaipur as Reader and Professor (1979-93). He is dedicated to higher research in Medieval Indian Architecture which he has studied in the field. He has worked at more than 45 historical sites, mainly of Western India, during the last three decades. He was the recipient of several research fellowships, including the prestigious Homi Bhabha Fellowship. He has authored more than 45 books, 10 monographs, 150 research-papers and 250 popular articles. He is internationally recognized as an authority on Mughal Architecture. His five-volume monumental series: History of Mughal Architecture is a classic of which three volumes and a supplement have been published. The series is, truly, his magnum opus. He has directed the course of the study of Indo-Muslim Architecture into the scientific channel and made it a perfect discipline, instead of a compendium of romantic tales, fanciful anecdotes and hearsay legends. He has traced the evolutionary process of this style, point by point, and emancipated it from sectarian and racial misnomers. His is, essentially, a study of the Land, the People and the Culture.
