It is a great pleasure for me to introduce you to the first interactive Web site on the Gardens of the Mughals, an Islamic dynasty that ruled between 1526 and 1858 in territories now divided among Pakistan, Afghanistan, Kashmir, and northern India. The Web site is one result of a multi-year project that has provided substantial new documentary information for important Mughal garden sites in and near Lahore, Pakistan. Under the direction of Professor James L. Wescoat of the University of Colorado at Boulder, the project was initiated in Pakistan by the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery and became a fully collaborative joint venture with the Department of Archaeology of the Government of Pakistan and the School of Architecture at the University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore. A symposium held in Washington, DC in 1992 and an international symposium held in Lahore the following year brought this project to a formal conclusion.
