The Emporer of Shah Jahan built the Taj as a resting place for his wife. It is named the 'mum Taj Mahal', or excellent crown palace. She died at 39 years old, while in childbirth of the 14th child.

This artwork is typical of the inlay inside the dome. There are over 14,000 flowers such as this, each having 64 petals each, inlaid with precious and semi-precious stones. That's almost a million tiny petals! (Photography is not allowed inside the dome. This picture is for reference, not from inside, as photos aren't allowed therein.)
