Taj Mahal is a tomb situated in Agra, India. It was built by the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal. The Taj Mahal is one of The Seven Wonders of the World and is said to be one of the finest exhibitions of Mughal art and architecture. The architecture has a mixture of Persian, Ottoman, India and Islamic influence. It was made a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1983.

Some legends say that after the Taj was built, the Mughal Emperor cut off the hands of all the men who built it so that the same masterpiece could not be made again. The Taj Mahal is located on the banks of the river Yamuna in Agra. It was built in 1631 and was completed in 1653, spreading over 32 acres of land.

The Taj Mahal is also called the Taj and is a symbol of love, known for its monumental beauty. The monument is one of the main tourist attractions in India. The beauty of the Taj goes beyond words and it is said that the place looks magnificent during the full moon. The word Taj Mahal means Crown Palace in English and it is made up off mainly white marble and colorful gemstones.

  19. Whatever. says:

    Much as I loved the Taj Mahal as a child, when I grew up and learnt what Shah Jahan did to the innocent, hardworking and talented workers, I hated the whole idea of this Monument. I see it as DEATH of many. Not a bloody monument of love and romance. Bullshit. He knew no love for MANKIND. Those poor unsuspecting workers did not know the consequences of their labor and I think however beautiful this Monument is, I can’t see the beauty over chopped hands of the builders of this Piece. THINK ABOUT IT BEFORE YOU GO GAGA OVER IT !!!!
