During a recent visit to India, I had the honour, and it is an honour to visit the Taj Mahal. It is one of the Seven Wonders of the world and so it should be. It is the most beautiful building I have ever seen and in my profession I make a point of visiting fabulous palaces, stately homes, and other magnificent places. It was built for a love lost with a tragic end. It is a mausoleum built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. Who lost his favourite wife after she gave birth to their fourteenth child! The story goes that as she was dying she asked him to show how much he loved her. Which he did by building this iconic memorial.
