When Emperor Shah's wife was dying, her last words were for him to build a mausoleum for her more beautiful than any the world had seen. She said it would be a symbol of their love. Not at all an easy task but the Emperor definitely put in work and the Taj Mahal was built. Totally romantic. Exceptionally poetic. Absolutely batshit crazy. No disrespect, but who takes the request of a dying person that literally? The dying are an addled, way-too-emo people.
