Taj Mahal

Location: Agra, Uttar Pradesh
Famous As: 7th Wonder of the world
Built By: Mughal Emperor Shahjahan
Built In The Memory: Mumtaz Mahal

The greater significance of a monument like Taj Mahal to the world is much more than being a part of the Seven Wonders of the World. Taj Mahal has become a symbol of endless love and devotion. Taj has been a visual delight for viewers over the ages.

Taj Mahal - The Symbol of Love in Agra IndiaHistory Of The Taj Mahal
Set against the backdrop of Yamuna River, this tribute of love was built by the third Mughal emperor of India, Shah Jahan in the memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal, who died during childbirth. Although it is not known for sure who planned the Taj Mahal, the name of an Indian architect of Persian descent, Ustad Ahmad Lahori, has been cited in many sources. As soon as construction began in 1630, masons, craftsmen, sculptors, and calligraphers were summoned from Persia, the Ottoman Empire, and Europe to work on the masterpiece.

It took 12 years of hard labour and 20,000 labourers to build the mausoleum. The architectural complex is comprised of five main elements: the 'Darwaza' or main gateway, the 'Bageecha' or garden, the Masjid or mosque, the 'Naqqar Khana' or rest house, and the 'Rauza' or the Taj Mahal mausoleum. The actual Tomb is situated inside the Taj.

The marble stature memorial has got embellishments of beautiful marble inlay work known as "Pietra Dura" that is a very integral part of Agra's art culture and traditions. But the most fascinating feature in this wonder is the garden with its water channels, lotus pools and colourful flowerbeds and trees.

Various Moods Of Taj Mahal
Taj Mahal travel is a joy forever and for any imaginative visitor rare experience. Internationally, Taj Mahal represents India; designed like a palace and finished like a jewel. Pure, gloriously perfect and superbly lovely, and like a jewel made of white marble, the Taj sparkles under the moonlight. During the early morning hours its white beauty takes a blushing soft pinkish colour and in the dusk hours Taj Mahal reflects the fiery shades of the setting sun. Nicely depicting the different moods of a woman, right!
