The "Ammunition Kingdom" was the name given to theMughal Empire, whereas the Indo-Aryan term "mongol" is derived from this. Babur wasGenghis Khan's successor. Throughout the sixteenth century, the Mughals kept features ofMongolian culture, such as erecting tents surrounding the royal camp during military campaigns.The Mughals followed Islam as their religion. This research paper will discuss the MughalEmpire's history and impacts in Delhi and the other parts of India.The Mughal Empire, which reigned over India's vast subcontinent, is often regarded asthe country's final golden period.

In contrast to Babur, the first Mughal Emperor, Akbar was born into a humblefamily. Sher Shah Suri, the founder of the Sur Empire in Northern India, exiled andimpoverished Humayan's father. Akbar the Great's life began in exile and poverty, but it did notend there. Akbar, Humayan's thirteen-year-old son, took control of the empire just months beforeHumayan's death.3Later, Akbar would prove to be an excellent general who would unite his vastEmpire through several wars, converting it from an unassailable empire and dynasty to acollection of fragile villages. His conquests were legendary, but so was his skill to control thevanquished and make the people comfortable. After conquering these countries, he would bringtheir rulers into his governmental framework.4
