Thinking Pakistan's History

Mughal Empire to British Rule

From Mughal Empire to British Rule
From three centuries of economic and cultural development under the Mughal Empire to colonization by the British. This era spans the years 1526 to 1857.

The Mughal Empire from the 16th to 19th century played a major role in the economic and cultural development of the region leaving an indelible mark on it.

From the 17th century, as the Mughal Empire crumbled, the British slowly gained power in the subcontinent through the East India Company eventually taking over in 1757.
