History. Shah Jahan ruled between 1628 to 1658.
The name Shah Jahan comes from Persian meaning
"King of the World". As Prince he was named
Khurram Shihab-ud-din Muhammad At the age of
fifteen, was to marry Arjumand Banu Begum, the
grand daughter of a Persian noble, who was 14
years old at the time. They would have to wait
five years before they were married in 1612, on a
date selected by the court astrologers. After
their wedding celebrations, Shah Jahan felt she
is so precious to him and he gave her title
Mumtaz Mahal which meant Jewel of the
Palace Mumtaz traveled with Shah Jahan's
throughout his military campaigns and she was
his trusted confidant. Mumtaz died in Burhanpur
(in the Deccan) during the birth of their
fourteenth child (a daughter). Her body remained
at Burhanpur for 23 years until the Taj was
completed, when her coffin was shifted to Taj
Mahal. Shah Jahan as he promised built a
mausoleum, which shows his love and affection
towards her. Soon, after Taj completion , Shah
Jahan was dethroned by his son Aurangzeb and was
put under house arrest at Agra fort. He passed
his last days viewing the Taj Mahal from Agra
fort. After his death, Aurangzeb buried him in
the mausoleum next to his wife Mumtaz.
