Born out of an emperor's obsession, the magnificent Taj Mahal today stands as one of the wonders of the world. Completely shattered by the sudden loss of his beloved wife, Shah Jahan, the fifth Moghul emperor, took to building a memorial which would not be easily erased from the memory of mankind. Named after the empress Mumtaz Mahal, the "Chosen one of the Palace," the Taj took fourteen years to build, using the labour of twenty thousand workers, and cost five million rupees. Encapsulating the Moghul age, this book tells you the love story of an emperor and the tales and legends behind the building of the Taj Mahal. The accounts are enhanced by some superb photographs of the monument and its surroundings.
