We all know the story of Taj Mahal. It has been told over and over. The modern city wonder, Taj Mahal was built by the emperor Shah Jahan as a gift for his wife, Mumtaz Mahal. The palace served as a tomb for Mahal.

But we rarely see a documentary about the city of Agra where the Taj Mahal is located. The city is popular thanks to the palace, but what does it exactly mean for the culture of the city, for the economy and for the people living in Agra.

The documentary offers a short description of the city, the Taj Mahal, but also a brief history how the palace was built. A very informative video, it makes a great parallel between the time we live now, and the time when the Taj Mahal was built.
