Great photo with the Taj Mahal, a camel and small child ... But what peeked my interest was the title. Thanks for the Wikipedia link and it's explanation for the title. I had forgotten that the Taj Mahal was built in memory of Mumtz Mahal.

Thanks for that Denton, there are some very interesting details about Mumtaz Mahal and Shah Jahan in that link. It is an incredible story of Love and Loss.
I've always found the rumour that Shah Jahan was planning a mirror image of the Taj Mahal made entirely of black marble intriguing, although I'm not sure how grounded in historical fact it is. Thanks Anamitra for this image.
