380 years ago today: Mumtaz Mahal dies during childbirth. Her husband, Mughal emperor Shah Jahan I, will spend the next 17 years building her mausoleum, the Taj Mahal. It is one of the most recognisable structures in the world. It is widely considered as one of the most beautiful buildings in the world and stands as a symbol of eternal love.
