I always thought the building of the Taj Mahal and its magnificent Mughal design by emperor Shah Jahan was a love story. Yes, he built it for his deceased wife Mumtaz Mahal; however, it's also a story of blood against blood, as Jahan's son imprisoned him to take over power, placing him in the Agra Fort where his only view was of his creation, the Taj Mahal, which he could only admire from a distance. 
That's the short version. The long version is VERY interesting!
