Mughal Architecture & the Khalili Collection with Mehreen Chida-Razvi

For the first episode of Season 2, Dr Isabelle Imbert welcomes Dr Mehreen Chida-Razvi, in-house editor and deputy curator in the Khalili collection of Islamic Arts, and specialist of Mughal architecture. The Mughal empire reigns between 1526 and 1857 on a territory that encompass, at its peak, modern India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, parts of Afghanistan, parts of Tibet, so talking about Mughal architecture is no small feat. Through the tombs, palaces and mosques, Mehreen gives some insights in what we call today Mughal architecture, its patronage, stylistic evolution, and the inherent challenges of its preservation.
