Q. Which of the following Mughal structure has the Buddhist architectural elements?

[A] Tajmahal

[B] Mausoleum of Akbar

[C] Panch Mahal

[D] Red fort

Answer: B

Architectural progress during the Mughals is a landmark in world art.  

  • Mughal buildings were noted for the massive structures decorated with bulbous domes, splendorous minarets, cupolas in the four corners, elaborate designs, and pietra dura (pictorial mosaic work).  
  • The mosques built during the time of Babur and Humayun are not of much architectural significance.  
  • The mausoleum of Akbar at Sikandra near Agra started by Akbar and completed by Jahangir includes some Buddhist architectural elements.
