    The Mughal Empire existed from 1526 to 1857. It was a powerful and influential empire that ruled over a large part of the Indian subcontinent. The empire was founded by Emperor Babur, who established the Mughal dynasty in 1526 after defeating the Delhi Sultanate in the Battle of Panipat. The Mughal Empire reached its peak during the reigns of Emperor Akbar, Jahangir, and Shah Jahan.

    Under the Mughal rule, India experienced significant cultural, architectural, and artistic achievements. The empire was known for its administrative efficiency, military prowess, and the establishment of a centralized system of governance. The Mughals also left behind a rich legacy of architectural marvels, including the Taj Mahal, which is considered one of the wonders of the world.

    However, the Mughal Empire began to decline in the 18th century due to a combination of factors, including weak rulers, invasions by foreign powers, and internal conflicts. The empire finally came to an end in 1857 with the Indian Rebellion of 1857, also known as the Sepoy Mutiny, which marked the beginning of British colonial rule in India.
