The great emperor Shah Jahan during the Mughal empire's period of greatest prosperity in 1631, was grief-stricken when his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal, died during the birth of their fourteenth child, Gauhara Begum. Construction of the Taj Mahal began in 1632, one year after her death. The court chronicles of Shah Jahan's grief illustrate the love story traditionally held as an inspiration for Taj Mahal. The principal mausoleum was completed in 1648 and the surrounding buildings and garden were finished five years later .Taj Mahal is the first wonder of the world where over several thousand of tourists visit every day to have glimpse of it.
