Khurja is a town located near the capital of Delhi. It is a center for ceramic production that dates back about 600 years. During this time, the Mughals lived and reigned in India. The Mughals (whose name derives from the Mongols) were quite different from their ancestors. They had absorbed Middle Eastern and Persian culture and brought this culture to India. The Mughal Dynasty was one of the greatest dynasties to rule India. The Mughals are famous for their blue pottery, which is made from a varying mixture of quartz, feldspar, and clay. Blue pottery is usually decorated with floral and vine motifs, and geometric, paisley, and abstract patterns. Blue pottery is bright in design and comes in the forms of tableware, dinner-sets, jugs, vases, bowls, and boxes for trinkets.
