Mughals had great legacy in Hindustan in various forms of art which have now become part of our composite culture. Many aspects of Mughals have been researched but comparatively less attention has been paid to conduct intensive research and make in-depth study on the Mosques and Tombs of Mughals which have surpassed all previous prototypes in Hindustan. These are the most important forms of Mughal architecture and keeping this in mind, an attempt has been made to throw a light on the historical, political and social architectural aspects of mosques and tombs of Mughals pertaining to Akbar and Jehangir period (1556-1627 A.D) in Delhi. The Author has done tremendous work by covering photographically all the architectural and decorative elements of these monuments with the background of the persons who got them constructed or buried in the tombs. This book also contains the aesthetics of Mughal Architecture.This book shall definitely be helpful for the scholars and students.
