Who Built the Taj Mahal and why?
The majestic structure of Taj Mahal was built by Shah Jahan, who was the fifth Mughal Emperor. From the childhood days of Shah Jahan was exposed to a broad spectrum of poetry, art, culture, and music. In the late 1612 century, Shah Jahan got married to the Arjunamand Banu Begum, also known as the Mumtaz Mahal.
With the passage of time, their love and bond grew and she bore him 14 children. When she was giving a birth to his 14th child she was nearer to the death. At the age of 37, she died. This incident had a profound impact on Shah Jahan who was completely heartbroken. The whole incident inspired him a lot to immortalize her memory by creating a masterpiece. And the masterpiece was the glorious Taj Mahal. The agony and soreness suffered by Shah Jahan in losing his ladylove and his eternal love for Mumtaz Mahal is what embedded in every nook and corner of the Taj Mahal.Taj Mahal Tour Packages

Shakespeare stated a quote about the eternal love which is personified and concretized by the Taj Mahal of India. The popular quote was-
“LOVE is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no; it is an ever-fixed mark,
That looks on tempests, and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
LOVE’s not Time’s fool”
