Brief Bio of Queen Mumtaz Mahal
Mumtaz Mahal is remembered in Indian history as the beloved wife and queen of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan. Taj Mahal was dedicated to her beauty by the Mughal emperor. She was truly the soul mate of the emperor. Whether it was the prayer halls, the battlefields, the pleasure gardens, the river banks or court meetings, Mumtaz Mahal was always present with her husband. She was his friend, confidante, philosopher, companion, wife, inspiration, strength and guide. In true sense they shared their life with each other. She was married to Shah Jahan in 1612 A.D, and gave birth to fourteen children. Mumtaz Mahal remained a loyal wife to her husband in his pleasures as well as sufferings. She was a well-educated, cultured and generous lady.
Mumtaz Mahal died in 1631 while giving birth to their daughter, Gauhara Begum. On her death bed she asked her husband to look after their children, her parents and to build a monument that would remain even after them to tell the tale of their love. The grief stricken emperor agreed. True to his words the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan, built the most unique monument in the history of the world, Taj Mahal in Agra. It stood for love, companionship and memories. Apart from the exquisiteness and its architectural grandeur it is the principle that counts. Taj Mahal was built to epitomise and to immortalise the love of Mumtaz Mahal and Shah Jahan. The monument is a saga of love that has been remarkably etched out of pristine white marble.
