Imagine that your husband loves you so much that he builds this structure to honor you. In 1631 Shah Jahan was so grief-stricken over the passing of his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal, that he built the Taj Mahal to honor her. Mumtaz Mahal passed away while giving birth to their 14th child. Construction of the Taj Mahal began in 1632. The building is an incorporation of Persian architecture.
This is a magnificent building and India is a place that I have always wanted to visit despite the warnings of extreme poverty in that country. I believe that even in India you can find hope, love and inspiration for life.
