This poignant Moghul mausoleum was constructed by Emperor Shah Johan in memory of his second wife Mumtaz Mahal, whose death in childbirth in 1631 left the emperor so heartbroken that his hair is said to have turned grey overnight. Semi-precious stones are inlaid in the marble.Construction of the Taj began in the same year and was not completed until 1653.
