We all know Taj Mahal at Agra was built by Shah Jahan in fond memory of his wife Mumtaz. But, do you know that Mumtaz Mahal died while giving birth to her 14th child at Burhanpur on 17 June 1631.

Burhanpur was never intended by her husband as his wife’s final resting spot. As a result, her body was disinterred in December 1631 and transported in a golden casket escorted by her son Shah Shuja.
