History

Emperor Shah Jahan first met Arjuman Ara Begum in 1608.Only 15-year-old Shahjahan was fascinated by her amazing softness, which is called love at first sight.After that, the engagement was completed very quickly in the same year.They were officially married in 1612, five years after the engagement. Shahjahan named him ‘Mumtaz Mahal’. Shahjahan's boundless love for his wife is revealed in his name.Their married life lasted 19 years.

★At the age of 36, Mumtaz, the idol of love, crossed the path of infinity by overcoming the illusions of the world.Shahjahan was devastated by the untimely demise of Mumtaz Mahal.Construction of the Taj Mahal began after Mumtaz's death.After the construction of the Taj Mahal was completed, Shah Jahan was overthrown by his son Aurangzeb and placed under house arrest at Agra Fort.

★It is said that Shah Jahan spent the rest of his life staring at the Taj Mahal through the windows of the Agra fort.After the death of Shah Jahan, Aurangzeb buried him next to his wife in the Taj Mahal. This alone has ruined the symmetry of the design of the Taj Mahal

★The Taj Mahal has attracted many tourists since its construction.Most tourists come in October, November and February during the cold season.

Taj Mahal is famous it is written over the books, it was built for his wife. He loves his wife dearly and named that "Taj Mahal" means "My Love" in English. Correct me if I'm wrong this was only the thought I remembered about Taj Mahal, I read it on a book long time ago 😁

Nice article, but you strangely jump from the 1600s to the 1800s. Surely a mistake. The 1st paragraph in "History" and the last paragraph in the section before that contain references to the 1800s, which, I suppose, should be the 1600s. Please look at that.

Sorry for the mistake. It won't be 1800s, it will be 1600s. Because Emperor Shah Jahan ruled from 1626-1658.Thank you for correction
