2 minute read

From the 16th century to the 19th century, Mughal emperors ruled almost throughout India. Babur established the Mughal dynasty, which ruled from the 1500s until the middle of the 1800s. The emperors of the Mughal Empire, which ruled for 331 years, were all descended from the same family, known as the “Timurid house.” The “Battle of Panipat” led to the establishment of the Mughal Empire. This dynasty had many rulers, but the first six are considered to be the most powerful among all. This “Hindu subcontinent” was ruled by the Mughals who were Muslims. The “Taj Mahal,” “Red Fort,” and many other magnificent antiques were among the countless treasures they left behind.
