The delivery of sachik presents to the bride's house for Prince Dara
Shikoh's wedding. LEFT half of a double page composition. Painted around
1635 by Bishandas, an artist who worked for three Emperor's of the Mughal
dynasty in India; Akbar, Jahangir, and Shah Jahan. The procession is shown
moving along one bank of the Yumuna river in Agra. No amount of verbal detail
can equal the direct visual awareness of pomp and ceremony, and of luxurious
life, with which the painter has invested the scene.
The wedding of Prince Dara Shikoh, whom Shah Jahan, the builder of the Taj
Mahal, favored as his successor was performed with exceptional splendor.
Marriage alliances within the imperial family were arranged within a very small
circle. This ceremony united Prince Dara Shikoh with Nadira Banu Begum. Her
father was Sultan Parvez, Shah Jahan's elder brother, and her mother was Jahan
Banu begum, daughter of Prince Murad (the brother of Jahangir and therefore
Parvez's uncle). Bride and groom were thus both grandchildren of Jahangir.
