Shah Jahan

Padshah Shah Jahan I (January 5, 1592 - January 22, 1666) was the ruler of the Mughal Empire from 1627 until 1658.Although a grandson of the Muslim apostate
Akbar the Great he was a firmly orthodox Muslim who initiated forty-eight military campaigns against non-Muslims in less than thirty years. Following the Ottoman
practice, on coming to the throne in 1628 he killed all his male relations except one who escaped to Persia.In Benares during his reign 76 Hindu temples were
destroyed, as well as Christian churches at Agra and Lahore. At the end of the three month siege of the Portuguese enclave of Hugh, he had ten thousand inhabitants
massacred and four thousand were later killed after refusing to convert to Islam.He commissioned the building of the Taj Mahal in Agra, for his first wife Empress
Mumtaz Mahal (meaning 'the first lady of the palace')
milf.Shah Jahan had 5,000 concubines and also conducted affairs with his daughters Chamani and Jahanara. But
for the last five years of his life he was imprisoned by his son Aurangzeb in a room Agra Fort, tended only by his eldest daughter Jahanara Begum, with a direct view
of the building. This was punishment for his endorsing Dara Shikoh, Aurangzeb's older brother in the fight for succession, but it was a better fate than he might have
expected; most Mughal Emperors killed their fathers upon succession.
