From when I was trying to screen print. My take on Mughal and Islamic art. It’s a little bit off and definitely not perfect, but learning new things is always fun. - - - - - - - - - - - #minimalist #patterns #symmetrical #islamicart #mughalart #mughal #brownart #desiart #mosqueart #mosquedesign #islamicgeometricart #geometricart #screenprinting #learningart #artist #art #artistsoninstagram #desiartist #desiartists #brownpeople #modernmughal #colourful #muslimaart #artwork #artminimal #artoftheday

Many clients associate lanterns with Mehndi decor. But they don’t always have to be, you can definitely use them at weddings to give an unexpected element. 🕯There are so many types of lanterns out there. Our gold pierced lanterns were a perfect fit for this Mughal themed look. ✨More pics to come! PC: @photographika1

The main gate of the Badshahi mosque. During the Mughal period, Lahore had its own strong regional style, which was heavily influenced by Persian architectural traits. The muqarnas or ‘honeycomb vaulting’ here are taken directly from Persian mosques. ~ @shahrozekk in #Pakistan . . . . #sacredfootsteps #sacredtravel #spiritualtravel #travel #sufi #islam #muslim #muslimtravelers #muslimtravel #halaltravel #sufism #pakistan #lahore #lahori #mughal #islamicarchitecture #punjab #badshahi #badshahimosque

Mate(reality) . . Stone has been the primary building material in architectural practices in India. These include heritage sites of tombs, gardens, temples and more. . . Indo-Islamic architecture during the Mughal period used a lot of sandstone, white marble, inlay work and inscriptions to create ornamental designs and tessellations, adorned with precious stones. . . The lifespan of this material culture is seen in the survival and condition of this architecture. Not only in the construction of the material but the way it is used. Indigenous materials last longer, being prone to environmental conditions, where sometimes it can nurture the material, instead of its degradation. . . Therefore, can we learn from these forms of material use in the past and re-use them in today’s context ? Not only in re-adaption of style of architecture but the confluence of material typology and technology ? . . . . #publicspaces #publicspacedesign #materiality #heritage #culture #architecture #typology #stone #design #material #instarchitecture #instadesign #instatravel #instadesigner #india #incredibleindia #monuments #worldheritagesite #unesco #instaheritage #instahistory #instaculture #mughal #mughalarchitecture #ourworldheritage

The Taj Mahal was commissioned by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in 1632; it was built so his beloved wife - Mumtaz, one of many, but by far his favourite, could be laid to rest there for eternity. Letter his remains were also laid to rest next to hers. As romantic as this sounds, it has been said that the many architects involved, lost their arms, thus preventing them from designing anything so spectacular again. 🇮🇳 #tajmahal #agra #india #wonderoftheworld #wondersoftheworld #7wondersoftheworld #tourism #tajmahalagra #indiatravel #bucketlist #mughal #shahjahan #mumtaz #mughalempire #architecture #architrcts #carvings #marble #monument #photography #holidaytime #destination #sightseeing #instaholiday #instaphoto #instaworthy

Chashme Shahi or Chashma i Shahi, also called Chashma Shahi, is one of the Mughal gardens built in 1632 AD around a spring by Ali Mardan Khan, a governor of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan as per the orders of the Emperor, as a gift for his elder son Prince Dara Shikoh in Srinagar Kashmir. #dslrofficial #klickers @instagram #reportagespotlight #gettyimages #1415mobilephotographers #spicollective #shuttersup #dslroffical #parimahal #hikaricreative #indiapictures #mughalgarden #thephotosque #mughal #reportagespotlight #captured_illusions #worldphotographersclub #dawndotcom #_woi #_soi #BestTravelPictures #kashmirsaarus #whpdailylife #whpseasonal

The Taj Mahal - meaning "Crown of the Palaces” - is an ivory-white marble mausoleum on the south bank of the Yamuna river in Agra, India. It was built between 1631 and 1648 by order of the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his favourite wife Mumtaz Mahal, a Persian princess who died giving birth to their 14th child. The Taj Mahal was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983 for being "the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world's heritage". ~ Agra-India, March 2016... #taj #mahal #palace #tajmahal #unesco #heritage #love #emperor #princess #mughal #yamuna #river #horse #work #crown #of #the #palace #mosque #takganj #agra #uttar #pradesh #uttarpradesh #incredibleindia #coloursofindia #storiesofindia #instagood #india #in
The Wazir Khan Series 4 - One cannot help being in awe of the exquisite detail in the Mihrab (semi circular indentation in the wall) of the Wazir Khan Mosque. The mihrab indicates the direction of the Holy Ka'aba, the directions Muslims face when praying. . . "Built during Shah Jahan's reign by the Governor Hakim Shaikh Ilmud-din Ansari in the 17th century, the Masjid Wazir Khan is located in the heart of old Lahore jut through the Delhi Gate. Constructed over a period of 7 years the mosque is built around an ancient subterranean tomb of the Saint Syed Muhammad Ishaq Gazrooni also known as Miran Badshah who migrated from Iran in the 13th century. The mosque is constructed in typical Mughal Architectural style with four imposing minarates, a huge central courtyard and domed main prayer chamber. The mosque is decorated and detailed with embellishments of Quranic calligraphy, Kashi kari (tile mosiac), fresco painting, stone and chuna (lime plaster) and taza kari on the interior and exterior surfaces." . . . . #travellife #travelphotography #travelphotography #wanderlust #travelbug #travelbeautifulpakistan #pakistan #canon #mosque #mughalart #mughal #mughalarchitecture #southasia #monuments #history #architecture #asia #travelgram #placesofworship #instatravel #vscopk #wazirkhan #lahore #walledcitylahore #voyged
The small force was cornered and overwhelmed but through sheer luck Bangash was able to fall back to the fort of Jaitpur. However attempts at relief failed and after some time the control of the siege was transferred from the Marathas over to the Bundelas. As it became blindingly clear that there would be no escape from this seige Bangash conceded and came to terms with the Bundelas agreeing to never return to Bundelkhand in return for passage back to safety Meanwhile the conflict in Malwa flared up again as Giridhar Bahadur's son Bhawani Ram and brother Daya Bahadur propped up a resistance against the Maratha surge in Malwa The Marathas obliged by assurances to their allies in Malwa had Malharrao Holkar enter the region at the head of a ten thousand strong force. Daya Bahadur had some early victories as he funelled the Marathas at passes and inflicted serious casualties upon them. But the Marathas not wanting to inflate the number of casualties on their side quickly took a step back and entered through an alternate route; outmaneuvering Bahadur they attacked him southwest of Dhar killing him and decimating his force. Delhi understandably was not too happy with this outcome and so dispatched Bangash once again to contend with the Maratha threat. Bangash came to the province prepared to eliminate the Maratha presence but failed to do so in view of their overwhelming numbers. He requested support and was promised reinforcements but failed to get anything substantial in the way of additional men or arms ------ #madhyapradesh #marathi #marathahistory #marathas #maratha #maharashtrahistory #maharashtra #bajiraoballal #bajirao #peshwabajirao #holkar #malharraoholkar #bangash #mughal #historical #india #indianhistory #bundelkhand #bundela #jaitpur #history #historicalseries #mughalempire #marathaempire #18thcentury #india

#Garden @ #TombofNurJahan is a 17th-century #mausoleum in #Lahore , #Pakistan . The tomb took four years to complete at the cost of Rupees three lakhs. #Mughal #Queen #NurJahan (1577–1645) was the most powerful and historical figure of the 17th century  She ruled India with elegance. Jahangir's addiction to opium and alcohol made it easier for Nur Jahan to exert her influence, she effectively wielded power & was recognized as the real force behind the Mughal throne, & exercised political authority with intelligence & courage. #Facts 1. Mehr-un-Nissa was born on 31 May 1577 in Kandahar, Afghanistan, into  Persian aristocrat family. 2. At festival of Nauroz in 1611, Jahangir first set eyes upon her remarkable beauty & married her within two months. He first gave her the title Nur Mahal "Light of the Palace" which he changed in 1616 to Nur Jahan, or "Light of the World." 3. She was the twentieth and the most favorite wife of Jahangir. 4. Once she entered the male court without any hesitation, which was a courageous act of that orthodox time. 5. Her artistic achievements include the Mughal gardens of Kashmir and Agra, the tomb of her father Itmad-ud-daula. 6.She was the only Mughal empress to have coinage struck in her name. 7.  She is reported to have slain four tigers with six bullets during one hunt, and someone said; "Though Nur Jahan be in form a woman, In the ranks of men she's a tiger-slayer". 8. In 1626, Jahangir was captured by rebels while on his way to Kashmir. Nur Jahan intervened & ordered the ministers to organize an attack on the enemy. 9. She was also poetess and composed Persian poems under the assumed name of Makhfi (meaning hidden). 10. Nur Jahan died in 1645, and is buried with her daughter "Ladli Begum" at Shahdara Bagh in Lahore, Pakistan, near the tomb of Jahangir. #mobilephotography #meadow #gloomy #flowers #fields #travelbeautifulpakistan #beautifulpakistan #picturepakistan #etribune #dawndotcom   #igpk #hellopakistan #flashh_pakistan #exploringbeautifulpakistan #explorepakistan #photoofthday #mobilephotography #photography #architecture #landscape @islamic_republic_of_pakistan @etribune @explorebeautifulpakistan @pakistan

#Repost @akdn ・・・ Sunder Nursery has been picked by @TIME Magazine as one of the World’s 100 Best Places! In recent years, the Sunder Nursery has undergone regeneration and restoration work undertaken by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture. The project aimed to enhance and showcase the ecological and built heritage of the 90-acre site. A nursery was originally established here in 1912 when the imperial Delhi complex was being planned for propagating and testing tree species from across India and overseas. An important aim for the development was to creatively combine monuments, forest and nursery functions within one interactive experience. The landscape master plan aimed to create a major landscape space of truly urban scale, deriving inspiration from the traditional Indian concept of congruency between nature, garden and utility coupled with environmental conservation. The nursery also provides a major new green space for public recreation. #Delhi #SunderNursery #restoration #regeneration #park #greenspace #Mughal #India #TIME #AKDN #qualityoflife
