Pinch me, I must be dreaming!
The Taj is magnificent! Construction started in 1632 and was completed around 1653.
Made from marble & jewels because Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan was so heartbroken by the death of his 3rd wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Mumtaz Mahal died during childbirth with their 14th child in 1631.
Shah Jahan was so in love with her and so heartbroken that he had the Taj Mahal built for her.
He had to move her body twice before she was placed in her final resting place, the Taj Mahal.
