History : During the Mughal period, inlay created the effect of richness with the help of bright attractive colours
and complexity of designs. The tomb of Humayun, begun around 1565, the tomb of Akbar at Sikandra, India, Jahangiri Mahal, Agra Fort, and the Jami‘ Masjid of Fatehpur Sikri, tomb of Itmad-ud-Daulah (built in 1622)
are out-standing examples of inlay work. During the reign of Emperor Shahjahan, monuments were
decorated with rich and marvelous decorative techniques. Inlay art flourished during this period. The style of
inlay decoration for buildings was very minute. R. Nath writes that stylized floral designs were executed with
tiny pieces of precious and semi-precious stones. The Shahjahan`s Mosque in Delhi has wide inlaid work
with inscriptions in black marble. In the Jahan Ara Mosque, Agra, built in 1648, the bulbous dome is inlaid
with wide bands of alternating red sand stone and marble. The Taj Mahal, Agra, built in 1631-1648, the
Jami‘ Masjid, Delhi, built in 1644, the Shahjahan Mosque, Thatta, built in 1644, Moti Masjid, Lahore, built in
1659-1660, and the Badshahi Mosque, Lahore, built in 1673 are paragons of this decorative mode. In the
Badshahi Mosque, inlaid work on flat surface and in low relief have been executed with perfect technique;
decorative floral motifs were cut out of white marble and inlaid on red stone in flat and embossed manner.
Ahmad Nabi Khan writes about the floral ornamentation of Badshahi Mosque and says that it has bold relief
inlay of white marble on red sand stone background on its entire exterior.
