Story Of Shah Jahan And Mumtaz Mahal

'Not a piece of architecture, as other buildings are, but a proud passion of an emperor’s love wrought in living stones.'

This beautiful quote was written to praise the magnificent charm and aura of this true epitome of undying love. Built in the memory of Mumtaz Mahal, this white marble mausoleum tells us the most romantic loves story of Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal. The sudden demise of the Queen left the emperor grief stricken but to immortalize their love he decided to build this wonderful monument, so that their love can be remembered for a long time.

Its for sure that a visit to Taj takes us to the ancient times, which is an experience in itself.
