Mughal rulers were skilled in adapting regional architectural styles in the construction of their buildings. For example:
  • In Bengal, the local rulers had developed a roof that was designed to resemble a thatched hut. The Mughals liked this 'Bangla dome' and used it in their architecture.
  • In Akbar's capital at Fatehpur Sikri many of the buildings show the influence of the architectural styles of Gujarat and Malwa.
