Dig into the construction of the Taj Mahal, a mausoleum that Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan had built for his wife Mumtaz Mahal. It’s 1631. Mumtaz Mahal, beloved wife of Emperor Shah Jahan, is giving birth to their 14th child. A healthy girl is born, but Mumtaz dies soon after. Sobbing uncontrollably, the emperor decides to build a tomb worthy of his queen: a replica of paradise to embody their love and project the power of the Mughal Empire for all time. Stephanie Honchell Smith details the construction of the Taj Mahal. Lesson by Stephanie Honchell Smith, directed by Jeff Le Bars, Jet Propulsion.

I have heard that he married mumtaz's sister after her death and also chopped off hands of the builders of tajmahal so they cannot recreate building like this again.

The Hindus have a love hate relationship with the Taj Mahal. They like that it brings in tourism revenue but hate that the world visits India to see a structure built by a Muslim king. The Taj stands as a symbol of beauty that affirms life in sharp contrast to the nihilistic, escapist, and life negating filth of Hinduism.

Fun fact them gems that lined the walls of the Taj where stolen by the British and to this day have refused to return them.

The Taj Mahal is technically a Persian piece of architecture. The Mughals were under Persian influence, Shah means king in Persian.

There is a popular rumor that Shah Jahan ordered for all the builders who worked on the Taj Mahal to have their eyes plucked out and their hands severed so that they could never gaze upon anything so beautiful as the Taj Mahal again, or build anything to rival its grandeur. Established fact proves he had done no such thing as among the many skilled laborers he employed to build his grand mausoleum were architects and craftsmen that came from Turkey, and Jahan wasn't willing to upset relations with the Ottoman Empire. Plus as stated in this video, some of the men he contracted to work on the Taj he kept for maintenance and repairs.

What about the fact that he had many wives and that he killed many workers so it cannot be replicated.
