Taj Mahal - Agra

History Of Taj Mahal
Taj Mahal and Gardens, Agra Located at the city of Agra in the State of Uttar Pradesh, the Taj Mahal is one of the most beautiful masterpieces of architecture in the world. It was built by the fifth Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan in 1631 in memory of his second wife Mumtaz Mahal. The construction of this architectural wonder began in 1631 and took over 20 years to complete. It took the labor and sweat of twenty thousand hands to turn the ambitious project of a crazy lover on the theme of love into a reality. The raw material was brought from all parts of India on the back of 1000 elephants.

Mumtaz Mahal
Mumtaz Mahal was so pretty that Shah Jahan lost his heart to her in their very first meeting at her silk and glass beads shop, which later was converted into a marriage. It was a big blow to Shah Jahan, when Mumtaz Mahal died. It was in the fond memory of his beloved wife that he built this magnificent wonder.

Taj Garden
Taj garden runs from the main gateway to the foot of the Taj Mahal. It is a Persian garden, which are artificially contrived and are based on geometric arrangements of nature. Like other Persian gardens, the landscape artists at Taj attempted to translate the perfection of heaven into terrestrial terms by following certain formulas.

Architectural wonder
Taj Mahal is regarded as one of the eight wonders of the world, and some Western historians have noted that its architectural beauty has never been surpassed. The Taj is the most beautiful monument built by the Mughals, the Muslim rulers of India. Taj Mahal is built entirely of white marble. Its stunning architectural beauty is beyond adequate description, particularly at dawn and sunset. The Taj seems to glow in the light of the full moon. On a foggy morning, the visitors experience the Taj as if suspended when viewed from across the Yamuna river.
