It is said that after building the Taj Mahal, Shah Jahan had decided to build another monument in black marbles that would be exactly be identical to the Taj Mahal. This was to act as his burial place, as his own mausoleum. He decided to construct it opposite to the bank of the River Yamuna and connect the two monuments by a beautiful decorated bridge. Shah Jahan began to build the tomb, but the war with Aurangzeb (his son) interrupted his plan.
