The pristine marble walls of the Taj Mahal tell tales of a family -- the royal family of the Moghuls -- driven by an overpowering passion of love and hate. At the center of this drama are the young lovers, Prince Khurram, son of Emperor Jahangir and Arjumand, the niece of Empress Noor Jahan. Amidst burning ambitions, a power struggle and a dark conspiracy, the budding romance of the two teenagers blossoms as Prince Khurram goes on to ascend the throne as Emperor Shah Jahan. Their relationship lasts 19 long years, until 1631, when the Empress passes away giving birth to her 14th child. Deeply struck by this tragedy, Shah Jahan devotes 22 years to perpetuate her memory. When it was completed, the Taj Mahal becomes Mumtaz Mahal for him, and when his body is interred alongside hers, together they became the Taj Mahal.
