Taj Mahal: Passion and Genius at the Heart of the Moghul Empire by Diana Preston

Shah Jahan is the most recognized member of the Moghul Empire because of the Taj Mahal, the incredible mausoleum he built for his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Taj Mahal covers several generations of the Moghul Empire. It is much more about the people than the Taj Mahal, though it does spend a few chapters on it. I found most of the book to be quite interesting and learned a whole lot. I recommend this book to adults interested in the Taj Mahal or the Moghul Empire.
