Gauharara Begum (June 17, 1631 - 1706) aka Gauhar Ara Begum or Dahar Ara Begum,[1] was an Imperial Princess of the Mughal Empire as the fourteenth and last child of the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan (builder of the Taj Mahal), and his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal.

Mumtaz Mahal died giving birth to her. Gauharara, however, survived the birth and lived for another 75 years. Little is known about her and whether she was involved in the war of succession for her father's throne.

Gauharara died in 1706, at the age of 75, from natural causes or disease.
