Taj Mahal

Book 11, Wonders of the World Books - A Story of Love and Empire

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Shah Jahan, ruler of India, murdered three of his brothers in his bloody rise to power. Yet when his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal died, he wept for a week. He expressed his grief by building the world's most beautiful tomb. 
Shah Jahan was the fifth Mughal emperor, a remarkable dynasty that combined brute force with artistic sensitivity. This is its story as told through its greatest achievement. With soaring domes, marble columns, vast gardens, and perfect symmetry, the Taj Mahal expressed the ambition, power, grandeur, and beauty of the Mughal world. "Dramatic...insightful..." School Library Journal "A beautiful book that highlights a stunning accomplishment in architecture."—Booklist
