Agra, India

Neither his first nor second wife gave the emperor any heirs to the Mughul throne.  Then, Shah Jahahn found Mumtaz Mahal, who gave him fourteen children, but died giving brith to the last.  In mourning, he built for his Mumtaz the Taj Mahal, one of the 'new seven wonders.' Can you imagine the army of elephants that contributed to this effort?  Where's their memorial?
