Taj Mahal - The Symbol of Love?

We all know Taj Mahal, one of the 7 wonders of the world, also known as symbol of love.

When I think of Taj, “Love” is the last thing that comes to my mind…

Here are a few hidden facts:
– Mumtaz was Shahjahan’s 4th wife out of his 7 wives!
– Shahjahan killed Mumtaz’s husband to marry her!
– Mumtaz died during her 14th child delivery
– After her death Shahjahan married Mumtaz’s sister!
– Took 22 years to complete with a workforce of 20,000. Shahjahan cut off the hands of all the workers after the completion of the Taj.
