Summary
The fifth installment of Michael Wood's journey through Indian history moves on to the time of the Renaissance in Europe, when India was the richest, most populous civilization in the world. The major focus is on the history of the Mogul Empire, its legacy, and the rulers most readily associated with it: the redoubtable Babur, founder of the Mogul dynasty, and his grandson Akbar the Great. The Mogul cities of Delhi, Agra, and Fatapur Sikri are featured, along with the inimitable Taj Mahal and the desert cities of Rajasthan
