Landscapes of Sufi Space in Mughal Delhi and Lahore
4 November 2011
Annemarie Schimmel Memorial Lecture at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Mughal tomb-gardens often sought physical proximity to Sufi shrines in ways that reshaped them in their era, and ours. This presentation explores the evolving spatial relationships between Mughal and Sufi landscapes of Delhi and Lahore— from Humayun's Tomb-Garden in the Nizamuddin area of Delhi to the Mian Mir Tomb-complex of Lahore.
