Taj Mahal is considered one of the most significant and beautiful buildings in the world. Taj Mahal has a very romantic love story behind its construction. It was built by the fifth Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan in the memory of his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Shah Jahan (his original name was Khurram) married Mumtaz Mahal (her original name was Arjumand Banu Begum) in 1612 after five years of love story. He was the son of the fourth Mughal Emperor, Jahangir, and she was a Muslim Persian Princess. When Shah Jahan ascended the throne in 1628, he bestowed his wife with the title Mumtaz Mahal (Jewel of the Palace). After 19 years of happy life, Mumtaz Mahal died in 1631 when she was giving birth to her 14th child. Shah Jahan was very brokenhearted and his court grieved for two years. Few years later, Shah Jahan decided to build Taj Mahal, in the memory of Mumtaz Mahal, which became one of the most outstanding monuments of Mughal and world architecture.

I think it is the architecture, the white marble, etc make Taj so remarkable. The romantic aspect is more of a hype created to attract tourists.
Thee are two ways of looking at Taj
(1) Ek ShahanSaah ne banavaa ke haseen taj mahal
saari duinayaa ko mohabbat ki nishani di hai
(2) Ek Shahenshah ne Banwa ke Taj mahal Hum Garibon ki Mohabbat ka udaya hai Mazaak.
