The Taj Mahal, one of the world's acknowledged wonders, represents the culmination of the arts of architecture and decoration which had developed in India during centuries of Mughal rule. In this book John Lall briefly traces the history of the Mughals in India. The account of the lives of the six great Mughal emperors has been enlivened by a lucidly written text which successfully recreates the spirit of the time and place. The greatness of the Mughals has been vividly captured by the sumptuous photographs of D. N. Dube.
