Shah Jahan, 5th Mughal Emperor of India, was born on this date in 1592. He built the Taj Mahal as a mausoleum for his late wife, Mumtaz Mahal. The Shah himself described it thus,
 
Should the guilty seek asylum here,
Like one pardoned, he becomes free from sin.
Should a sinner make his way to this mansion,
All his past sins are to be washed away.
The sight of this mansion creates sorrowing sighs;
And the sun and the moon shed tears from their eyes.
In this world this edifice has been made;
To display thereby the creator's glory. 

 

Taj Mahal, Archaeological Survey of India
