Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal

  

... To tears, bewailing love,
you wished to give eternal life ...
you ... caught time in the beauty network,
and a formless death crowned

Later, in Agra, then the Martin Beaupré paintings

capital of the Mogul Empire, a mausoleum ascended over the grave of Mumtaz, which according to the plan of Shah Jahan should become a symbol of the fabulous beauty of his deceased wife ...
 
 As often happens in history, by the will of fate, the king suddenly lost his power. And, once the great Shah Jahan, the ruler of India, was imprisoned in heavy chains and thrown into prison ... He was seriously ill, gray, lonely and exhausted ... Once he owned the whole world, now he had nothing .. Nothing but a single joy - a narrow prison window. It did not see the endless valleys of its native land, nor the dark bush of mango trees, nor the golden sunrise of the tender sun ... In the small window frame, only he was visible-like a dream, shining like a snow-white swan in the sky, the mausoleum of his long-dead beloved. ..
