Taj Mahal : India's Majestic Tomb
Taj Mahal

Chronicling a massive construction project that took 20 years and 20,000 people to complete, Taj Mahal: India's Majestic Tomb is a fascinating story that weaves together Indian history, culture, and biography. Young readers will meet the grieving Shah Jahan, who ordered the tomb’s creation as a tribute to his beloved wife when she died in 1631. Shah Jahan spared no expense in building this lasting memorial. Decorated with sparkling jewels, the Taj Mahal remains one of the most beautiful and recognizable tombs in the world.
