Mughal India: Art, Culture And EmpireMore than 200 paintings and artefacts documenting the entire period of the Mughal Empire, which at its peak spread from Kabul in the northwest and covered most of the South Asian subcontinent, are displayed in this major exhibition. Taking place at the British Library, it will be the first ever exhibition to document the entire period, from the 16th to the 19th centuries. Among the 200 exquisite objects on display, Bahadur Shah II's crown, a page from the imperial manuscript Akbarnama and a portrait of Prince Dara Shikoh will feature.
