Expert Answer:

Shah Jahan continued Akbar’s policy of expansion. He strengthened the Mughal empire by conquering the Deccan. He subdued the kingdoms of Bijapur, Ahmadnagar and Golconda.

He sent a large army into Central Asia to suppress the Uzbegs, but the expedition proved to be a failure. He also failed to regain Kandahar from the Persians. Shah Jahan expelled the Portuguese from Bengal as they were misusing their trading privileges.
