Sunrise on a summer day at Humayun’s Tomb in Delhi. After their morning walk around the charbagh, four gentlemen sit on the steps of the sixteenth-century Mughal tomb. The maqbara, commissioned in 1569, was amongst the first monuments to use the combination of red sandstone and white marble, which became a Mughal signature. Over the subsequent centuries, Mughal emperors provided patronage to architects, craftspeople and scholars who led a syncretic artistic and literary flourishing. It is partly due to this legacy that citizens from different cultures and faiths share so much not in spite of but because of their varied backgrounds.
