In competitive exams like SSC, Banks, PSC, Railway, Defense and state-level exams, questions are asked about the books of Mughal emperors. Here, we have listed some popular books written by famous Mughal Emperors.

The Mughal Emperors were not only known for their greatness and political skills but also for their patronage of the arts and literature. Many of the Mughal Emperors were avid readers and writers themselves, and they played a significant role in promoting and preserving the literary traditions of their time.

One of the most famous Mughal Emperors, Akbar the Great, had a deep interest in literature and commissioned the translation of several important works from Persian to Arabic. He also established a library known as the “Library of Forty”, which housed a vast collection of books on various subjects, including history, religion, philosophy, and literature.

Jahangir, the son of Akbar, was also known for his love of books. He maintained a personal library and encouraged the translation of Sanskrit texts into Persian. He even wrote his own biography, the “Tuzk-e-Jahangiri,” which provides valuable insights into the Mughal court and his own reign.
