Our tour guide told us that the Emperor’s plan was to have a matching Taj Mahal-styled building built in black marble across the river (that is why the Emperor’s tomb inside the Taj Mahal throws off the symmetry of the building). Before it could be started, one of the Emperor’s sons imprisoned him.

    Thanks for the pics. Just imagine had the black Taj been constructed how beautiful it would have been! I recently read the awesome book Black Taj Mahal a sufi love story. Loved it! And the old bollywood film.
