Catherine Zeta-Jones was, like the millions before her, swept away by the magnificence of the Taj Mahal, referring to it as the ‘ultimate love story’. The Taj Mahal was famously built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as a memorial for his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. His grave was later placed next to his queen within the Taj Mahal.

The family next headed out for a jungle safari, with Mrs. Jones sharing a video and photo of the animals they encountered, including a mounted elephant that they crossed paths with along the safari and a hungry tiger chomping on his first meal of the day: a torn-up carcass of an animal, probably killed in a previous hunt and stored by the tiger for its next meal.
