Among the most striking examples of Mughal heritage are the many beautiful buildings that were constructed in the Mughal style, where the merging of Persian and Indian created some of the world's best-known monuments. This combination of influences can also be seen in the arts, cuisine, fashion and language, as well in thought, politics, warfare, religious attitudes and lifestyle. Join an esteemed panel of speakers to discuss the large and prominent mark left by the Mughals on the subcontinent including journalists and authors John Keay and Timeri Murari, curator and author Susan Stronge and broadcaster Fergus Nicoll.
