ALIR - Mughal India, 1526-1828

In 1536, an Islamic army from Central Asia invaded India and established the Mughal Empire, ruling much of the sub-continent for more than 300 years. We will explore the challenges and legacy of this Muslim rule over predominantly Hindu India. We will also study the cultural richness that resulted from the mixing of religions and traditions, which produced such jewels as the Taj Mahal. Finally, we will consider the coming of Europeans which resulted in the British conquest of the Mughal Empire.
