A monument to a most-loved wife, the Taj Mahal is one of the world's most beautiful and symmetrical buildings. Reenactments and paintings blend to tell the love story of Shah Jahan and his wife Muntaz, who died giving birth. The grieving Shah built the Taj to honor her and their love. Narrated by Leonard Nimoy.
