    The Mughal Empire was located primarily in the Indian subcontinent. The core territories of the Mughal Empire covered much of modern-day India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh.

    Some key facts about the geographic location of the Mughal Empire:

    • The Mughal Empire originated in Central Asia and was founded by Babur, a descendant of the Mongol leader Genghis Khan. Babur conquered Delhi in 1526 and established the Mughal dynasty in India.

    • The capital cities of the Mughal Empire were located in northern India, including Delhi, Agra, and Lahore (in present-day Pakistan).

    • At its peak in the late 16th and early 17th centuries, the Mughal Empire extended across most of the Indian subcontinent, from Afghanistan in the northwest to Bangladesh in the east.

    • The empire’s territories included the modern-day countries of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and parts of Afghanistan.

    • The Mughals ruled over a diverse geographical region, encompassing the Himalayas in the north, the Thar Desert in the west, and the coasts of the Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal.

    So in summary, the Mughal Empire was centered in and dominated the Indian subcontinent, particularly the northern, central, and eastern regions that now make up India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. Its political and cultural influence radiated across the entire region during its heyday.
