The Mughal Fort improves both the city's defensive strength and Culture, and in Brave New World, it later provides a Tourism bonus to the city as well. It works well with the Indian strategy of digging in and fortifying their few, but very productive cities. The enhanced tourism provides a much appreciated bonus to achieve a cultural victory.
The Mughals were an Islamic empire that invaded India in the 15th century, and ruled most of the sub-continent until the mid 19th. During their rule, they constructed elaborate forts across the countryside which served as administrative centers and living quarters for the occupiers. These forts were beautiful structures, fitting palaces for the rulers of a vast empire. Several--including the magnificent "Lahore Fort" and Red Fort of Agra--survive today and remain as some of the largest tourist attractions to India, monuments to the Mughals' power and style.
