FC: Powerful Empires Project HWC, MWF, 9am Ms. Crow Hope Hartanowicz hh130795

1: Namast aura mugala smrjya k li' pak svgata hai | Hello and Welcome to the Mughal Empire! | My name is Hope, everyone calls me Hopey. I will be your docent for todays Tour!

2: In the above map, the green shaded part is the Mughal Empire. It lasted between the 1500s-1700s

3: The Mughal Empire used to make up most of India except for the white tip on the bottom and the little island next to it. | Also, did you know there is another season called a "Monsoon" or known as the rainy season. This season has torrential rain fall moving slowly through out the entire nation. This happens around summer and winter.

4: Now I would like to pause our tour to ask you all a question. "What season tends to influence the art and literature in South Asia? | Correct! You over there with the gold pilot wings! Tell me what is your name? Ms. Crow? Well Ms. Crow let us fly over to this wall to look at some art and literature that the Monsoon season has influenced!

5: Before the Storm The scattered leaves shook with life and flung the air with swirls of dust; swept the trees and swayed their heads, brushed the skies with thick gray clouds; layer on layer menacing black, moving in waves and waves to attack; an army rushing, horde upon horde, whirling and swirling the dust on the road; leaping and tearing, snapping dry branches, banging the windows and doors; with a lull... the wind holds its breath for the storm

6: Wasn't that nice art and poetry? did you know that under the Mughal people, "Islamic and Hindu styles of art and architecture blended to create a unique Indian style." Painters adapted Persian techniques. | To the right of this text box is a Persian painting of Shah Jahan or King Akbar's grandson. | Below this text box is the building that Shah Jahan had built. The building was built according to the mix of Islamic and Hindu styles.

7: In the previous room I mentioned Akbars grandson. You might wonder who Akbar is. | Akbar was the king of the Mughal Empire. He also was responsible for the golden age. | Indians loved Akbar. Akbar adopted the policy of "religious toleration" and he got rid of the special tax on Hindus. Not only that he also provided jobs to Hindus in the government. | Akbar reined from 1556 - 1605

8: The Mughal government was a centralized government. The emperor was the fountain of all honors, source of all administrative power and the dispenser of supreme justice, They were not dictators as they kept the interest of the people highest in their mind. | King Akbar along with the previous emperors (Babur 1583-1530 and Humayun 1530-1556) led their country a certain way. Below is the most basic description of their style of government.

9: Now I have been talking about the emperor and all. You are probably wondering weather I forgot about the people! No worries! I didn't! | So, the people's lives depended upon their wealth or social rank. Nobilities are highest. They are the ones who are privileged and monopolized most jobs. Then the Clans or family links, they are considered important. Then the merchants and traders. They have their own rights based on tradition and property. They also remain a high standard of living. | Men in government often relied upon wives for political advice and many rich aristocratic woman learned to read and write. | Woman even fought beside men in battle. However, woman were not equal to men. They were isolated.

10: Your tour stops here! Have any questions, stick around. | If not, then here is a free timeline to help you remember the major events! | Thank you! I hope you enjoyed the tour!
