Victoria and Albert Museum

The world’s greatest museum of art and design

The Mughal Empire was an imperial power in the Indian subcontinent from about 1526 to 1757. At the height of their power in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, they controlled most of the subcontinent - extending from Bengal in the east to Balochistan in the west, Kashmir in the north to the Kaveri basin in the south. The V&A's collection of Mughal court arts includes some of the most important pieces in the world.
