The Taj Mahal

Once upon a time, there was a king named Shah Jahan who loved his wife Mumtaz Mahal very much. They lived in a beautiful palace in India and had many children. Mumtaz Mahal was kind and gentle, and everyone admired her.

One day, Mumtaz Mahal became very ill and died while giving birth to their fourteenth child. Shah Jahan was heartbroken and decided to build a magnificent tomb for his beloved wife. He wanted it to be the most beautiful building in the world.

He hired thousands of workers, artists, and architects to design and construct the tomb. It took 17 years to complete it[^1^][1]. The tomb was made of white marble that sparkled in the sun. It had four tall towers called minarets at each corner, a large dome at the center, and many intricate carvings and decorations.

The tomb was called The Taj Mahal, which means “crown of palaces”[^2^][2]. It was surrounded by gardens, fountains, pools, and gates. Shah Jahan also built a mosque next to it for people to pray.

The Taj Mahal became a symbol of love and beauty. People from all over the world came to see it and admire its splendor. Shah Jahan was proud of his creation but he never stopped missing his wife.

He spent his last years gazing at The Taj Mahal from his window until he died. He was buried next to Mumtaz Mahal inside The Taj Mahal[^3^][3]. Their spirits remained together forever in their magnificent monument.

The end.
