What is the history of Taj Mahal?

Jahan fell in love with adorable Mumtaz from Persia and decided to marry her. Mumtaz was so tender, caring and adorable, that she became his favorite wife and gave birth to 14 amazing children.

 

Their love lasted for 17 years, but the last period was too tough, and Mumtaz couldn’t overcome it. In order to remember her, Jahan ordered to build a majestic mausoleum, which would be as beautiful as Mumtaz.
