Burhanpur became the capital of the Khandesh sultanate. Later, Miran Adil Khan II (reigned 1457–1501), another sultan of this dynasty, built a citadel and a number of palaces in Burhanpur. During his long reign, Burhanpur was transformed into a major centre for trade and textile production.Under the MughalsIn 1601, Mughal emperor Akbar annexed the Khandesh sultanate and Burhanpur became the capital of Khandesh subah, one of three new top-levels provinces of the Mughal empire, added in 1601 (like Berar subah in 1869 and Ahmadnagar subah in 1601-35) to the initial dozen as he conquered much of the Deccan, and renamed Khandesh to Danesh after his son Daniyal.
