Mirza Shahab-ud-Din Baig Muhammad Khan Khurram (5 January 1592 – 22 January 1666), also known as Shah Jahan I, literally 'King of the World', was the fifth Mongol emperor, reigning from 1628 to 1658. Under his reign, the Mongols reached the height of their architectural achievements and cultural glory.

Third son of Jahangir (r. 1605-1627), Shah Jahan participated in military campaigns against the Rajputs of Mewar and the Lodis of the Deccan. After Jahangir's death in October 1627, Shah Jahan defeated his youngest brother Shahryar Mirza and crowned himself emperor in Agra Fort. In addition to Shahryar, Shah Jahan executed most of his rival claimants to the throne. He commissioned many monuments, including the Red Fort, the Shah Jahan Mosque and the Taj Mahal, where his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal, is buried. In foreign affairs, Shah Jahan presided over aggressive campaigns against the Deccan sultanates, conflicts with the Portuguese, and wars with the Safavids. He also put down several local rebellions and faced the devastating Deccan famine of 1630–32.

In September 1657, Shah Jahan fell ill and appointed his eldest son Dara Shikoh as his successor. This appointment led to a succession crisis among his three sons, of which Shah Jahan's third son, Aurangzeb (r. 1658–1707), emerged victorious and became the sixth emperor, executing all of his surviving brothers, including the Crown Prince Dara Shikoh. After Shah Jahan recovered from his illness in July 1658, Aurangzeb imprisoned his father at Agra Fort from July 1658 until his death in January 1666.[6] He was buried next to his wife in the Taj Mahal. His reign is known for putting an end to the liberal policies initiated by Akbar.

During Shah Jahan's era, Islamic revival movements like the Naqshbandi began to shape Mongolian politics.
