Art HistoryThe Mughal Empire in India (1526–1858) flourished under a long line of dynamic and highly cultured rulers. Some of the greatest achievements of Indian art and architecture were produced during this period. Because Mughal rulers required a large quantity of textiles and carpets to decorate their palaces, tents, and gardens, they developed extensive court workshops to produce them.
