About a month ago I paid my debut visit to the Taj. Yes, it is an impressive piece of architecture, but I was left wondering…

  • If Shah Jehan had constructed the mausoleum exclusively for himself and not for his beloved wife Mumtaz (one of the many in his harem and who died giving birth to her 14th child)
  • If the material used was something other than pristine (no longer) white marble (the replica in black never materialized anyway)

Would the Taj Mahal captivate the generations as it does? I doubt.
