It is officially stated they have 272 mosques, of which that of Aurungzeb, with its lofty minarets, is the largest.
In the reign, however, of Aurungzeb, it was overrun by the Turks.
The Mogul empire rapidly expanded during the reigns of Akbar and his successors down to Aurungzeb, when it attained its climax.
But one of those sons, Aurungzeb, was a man of restless ambition.
Aurungzeb was the first of the Moghuls to reside in the Mahomedan atmosphere of Delhi throughout his long reign.
Govind spent most of his time in wars with Aurungzeb marked by indomitable perseverance rather than success.
Within thirteen years of Aurungzeb's death, in 1706, six sovereigns were seated on the imperial throne.
Not content with his appointed province of the Deccan, Aurungzeb pretended to the imperial crown itself.
The head was then immediately brought to Aurungzeb, as a certificate that his orders had been duly executed.
