Here is where you see the result of the original idea which was likely born of what the love for a departed spouse can accomplish. Shah Jahan built the Taj Mahal in memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal. But this was preceeded about 100 years earlier by Hamida Manu Begum (mother of Akhbar the Great) building a monument/resting place in memory of her husband Humayun, Mogul Emperor, who unfortunately died falling down some stairs.
