The mughal court has been vividly depicted in these miniature paintings. The Mughals were the last powerful descendants of the Mongols (Timurids) and ruled India for centuries (15th-18th centuries). Thus, more often, an Indian miniature is a picture but hardly ever a camera vision of things. It always has an edge over what the lens of a camera captures. The Central Asian Timurid Dynasty had embraced Persian culture and religion (Islam). Thus the Timurids had Turco-Mongol origins and Persian courtly culture and art.
