Uncovering the Life and Legacy of Dara Shukoh, the Beloved Mughal Prince
Dara Shukoh and Aurangzeb, both sons of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, were vastly different in character and ideology. Dara Shukoh was known for his poetic, artistic, and secular nature, and was the favorite of his father and the darling of the Mughal capital, Shahjahanabad.
