Who wouldn’t be moved by the story of this building? It was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his 3rd wife Mumtaz. She must have been some woman, as he didn’t do anything lavish to commemorate his other wives. Made from white marble that appears rose as the sun sets, this world heritage site is one of the most recognised buildings in the world.
