Mughal art patroning began with the Mughal King Akbar in 1571 when he built the legendary Fatehpur Sikri. Most of the support in terms of architecture was always provided to Mughal empire from Persia. Akbar managed to collate the Indian and Persian cultures in the form of Indo-Persian Mughal art forms of different kinds.
