UNESCO - Taj Mahal

Anaita in India and I swapped a few cards for our UNESCO collections and this great one shows the Taj Mahal.  I know it's seen as a symbol of eternal love but I didn't know the story behind it so I looked up the Wiki entry -

'The Taj Mahal is an ivory-white marble mausoleum on the south bank of the Yamuna river in the Indian city of Agra. It was commissioned in 1632 by the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan, to house the tomb of his favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal.'
