Taj Mahal
She death giving him their fourteen child, she was the Pearl Palace, the King´s favorite, so he mired in the purest desolation.

In her memory, the King Shah Jahan built the Taj Mahal mausoleum, whit whom he wanted to offer the palace and the crown she never had in life.

Twenty years of construction, but even in his last years, prisoner by his own son, at the Red Fort where he watched the Taj Mahal, he couldn´t forget her.

example of eternal love.

The Legend
The emperor described by himself the Taj in these words:

Should guilty seek asylum here,
Like one pardoned, he becomes free from sin.
Should a sinner make his way to this mansion,
All his past sins are to be washed away.
The sight of this mansion creates sorrowing sighs;
And the sun and the moon shed tears from their eyes.
In this world this edifice has been made;
To display thereby the creator's glory.
Is a white marble mausoleum located in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India. It was built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal.
Maybe an example of eternal love:
