Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal. Color painting on paper Artist:Kailash Raj. Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, was so in love with his late wife Mumtaz Mahal that he built the Taj Mahal as a monument to her.

After the completion of Taj Mahal, Shah Jahan ordered all of the builders hands cut off so that the structure could not be replicated.  This was metaphorically speaking...he only asked that the builders never work as builders again, for he would take care of them of the rest of their lives.
