The David Chipperfield-designed Mughal Museum is now under construction about an mile from the Taj Mahal. It's one of four new attractions planned for Agra, India.

The museum will include 5,200 square meters of permanent and temporary exhibition space exploring the history and culture of the Mughals, a dynasty that ruled over northern India from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries. It was Mughal emperor Shah Jahan who commissioned the Taj Mahal in 1632 to hold the tomb of his favorite wife.
