Ganjifa is a card game that originated in Persia and became popular in India under the Mughal emperors. It is difficult to tell when card games made their first appearance in India. Playing cards were apparently not known in India before the beginning of the sixteenth century. Though there is evidence to show that Ganjifa playing cards were in use in India as far back as the seventh century A.D. or earlier. They were introduced under the first Mughal Rulers who brought them from their ancestral homes of Central Asia. The first known reference is in an early-16th century biography of Babur, the founder of the Mughal dynasty.
