Taj Mahal, Agra photo copyrighted by: Brian McMorrow
The Taj seems to glow in the light of the full moon. On a foggy morning, the visitors experience the Taj as if suspended when viewed from
across the Jamuna river. The queen’s real name was Arjumand Banu. In the tradition of the
Mughals, important ladies of the royal family were given another name at their marriage or at some other significant event in their lives, and that new name was commonly used by the public. Shah Jahan's real
name was Shahab-ud-din, and he was known as Prince Khurram before ascending to the throne in 1628.
