There was an outburst of many-sided cultural activity in India under the Mughals. The Mughals were great builders. Under their patronage magnificent forts, palaces, buildings etc. were constructed. The most famous monuments of the reign of Akbar were the Humayun’s tomb at Delhi and the buildings at Fatehpur Sikri. But the Buland Dcirwaza or the Lofty Gate erected by Akbar in the gateway of Fatehpur Sikri to commemorate his victory in Gujarat deserves at special mention. By far the best specimens of Mughal art, however, were created by Shahjahan. Tajmahal, Jiimma Masjid, Diwan-i-Am, Diwan-i-Khas, Moti Masjid, etc. of Shahjahan’s reign are the gems of the Mughals architecture at its zenith.
