About MughalArch.com

Kangura 1

This website is intended to be a tool for understanding what the elements of Mughal Architecture are and how they come together to make Mughal Architecture phenomenal. Experiencing Humayun's Tomb by viewing clear and focussed illustrations at your own pace, without distractions, and from the comfort of where ever you choose is far easier than most of the alternatives.
