This exhibition celebrates the artistic, cultural, and scientific achievements of one of the great empires of modern history. Through paintings, documents, maps, and scientific treatises, the exhibition traces the story of the Mughals.


The manuscripts and paintings catalogued in this publication were originally shown at the British Library in London in 2012 and subsequently facsimiles were put on display at Babur’s Garden in Kabul under the title “The Mughals: Art, Culture and Empire”. Both exhibitions contained the works in the following eight sections.

 

This catalogue has been produced in conjunction with the exhibition ‘The Mughals: Art, Culture & Empire’, presented by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture and the British Library and held in the Queen’s Palace in Babur’s Garden in Kabul from May to October 2013.
