Do you know the story of the Black Taj? If you come from India you do. The Taj Mahal was commissioned in 1632 by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan to house the remains of his cherished wife, Mumtaz Mahal. She died giving birth to their 14th child. Legend has it, that Shah Jehan decided to construct another Taj Mahal in black marble on the other side of the river Yamuna and to connect the two by a bridge. As he began to build his own tomb on the other side of the river, a war with his sons interrupted his plan and he was unable to complete it. 3:57 min. 2 MB
