Giles Tillotson tells us the human drama behind the building, particularity the relationship between Shaj Jahan and his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal, who lie there. He explores its reputation as a Wonder of the World over 400 years and its representation in art, and analyses the secrets of its architectural success. He concludes with the troubled story of conservation, first by Lord Curzon, and records recent disputes about its ownership, treatment and exploitation. But, whatever else, there is no doubt that the Taj holds a secure place in the world's collective consciousness.
