The rebellion of Khurram absorbed Jahangir's attention, so in the spring of 1623 he negotiated a diplomatic end to the conflict.

Much of India was politically pacified; Jahangir's dealings with the Hindu rulers of Rajputana were particularly successful, and he settled the conflicts inherited from his father.

Celebrations at the accession of Jahangir in 1600, when Akbar was away from the capital on an expedition, Salim organised a coup and declared himself Emperor.

Akbar had to hastily return to Agra and restore order.

Khurram was kept busy with several campaigns in Bengal and Kashmir.

Jahangir built on his father's foundations of administration and his reign was characterised by political stability, a strong economy and cultural achievements.

The Hindu rulers all accepted Mughal supremacy and in return were given high ranks in the Mughal aristocracy.

Jahangir was fascinated with art, science and architecture.

The world's first seamless celestial globe was built by Mughal scientists under the patronage of Jahangir. He set the precedent for sons rebelling against their emperor fathers and was much criticised for his addiction to alcohol, opium, and women.

He was thought to allow his wife Nur Jahan too much power, and her continuous plotting at court is considered to have destabilised the empire in the final years of his rule.The painter Ustad Mansur became one of the best artists to document the animals and plants which Jahangir either encountered on his military exhibitions or received as donations from emissaries of other countries. This was especially so during the period when he came under the influence of his Persian Empress, Nur Jahan and her relatives, who from 1611 had dominated Mughal politics.
