The first association many people get when India is mentioned is Hinduism, Buddhism, and Hindi culture. But did you know that several centuries ago, India was actually ruled by Turks and Mongols?
Known as the Mughal Empire, the period between the 16th and the 19th century up until 1857 was the period of the Mughal Empire, when Turks and Mongols of the Timurid dynasty ruled the country.
And what few people know that most of the beautiful architecture in India, including the amazing Taj Mahal dates back to this time.
The documentary explains the rise of power of the Mughal Empire, its greatest emperors and the downfall of the country.
Understanding the history of India is not an easy task, and the Mughal period surely belongs in that history timeline. Sadly, few people nowadays associate India with a beautiful, rich and prominent period not just in culture, but architecture as well.
The fifth emperor of the Mughal Emperor, Shan Jahan, is the one mostly responsible for the Mughal architecture, including almost all of Delhi, the Red Fort, the Taj Mahal, the Lahore fort and much more. His successor, Aurangzeb, helped the empire reach its zenith in terms of territorial expanse.
