    Mughal emperor Shah Jahan built the Taj Mahal in Agra, India, as a tribute to his favorite wife, who died in childbirth in 1631. The white marble monument, with its sprawling gardens, took more than 15 years to build. Promise or no, Shah Jahan poured his passion and wealth into the creation of just such a monument.

    No time at all. It sprang up overnight, apparently, when no-one was looking. Just appeared, without so much as a by-your-leave. I'm thinking UFO's. Definitely. They're dropping from the skies, those things. The UFO's, that is. Not the Taj Mahal's.
