Taj Mahal

Post Thumb

History 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.

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!

“It appears like a perfect pearl on an azure ground. The effect is such I have never experienced from any work of art.” :- Hodges, British painter
