The famous Indian Nobel-winning writer Rabindranath Tagore described the Taj Mahal as ‘a teardrop on the cheek of time.’
In 1631 Mumtaz Mahal, the third wife of Emperor Shah Jahan died during the birth of their 14th child. The emperor was so sad that he ordered a tomb to be built for her. The Taj Mahal was finished in 1648 and is now the tomb of both Mumtaz Mahal and Shah Jahan.
This is a picture of Mumtaz.
