Taj Mahal, Agra Overview

Taj Mahal located on the banks of the Yamuna River is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The Mughal Emperor Shahjahan as a memorial built this marble tomb to his wife, Mumtaz Mahal. A dream etched in milky white pristine marble is the peerless monument portraying the beauty of eternal love! A commemoration of the memory of Shahjahan's beloved wife, Taj Mahal is indeed India's rich tribute to womanhood. The Mughal Emperors were always fond of constructing monuments. Perhaps they knew that even though they leave the mortal world, these structures would remind the world of their grandeur. Shah Jahan, the ever-constructing sultan was particularly fond of building, the proof being-the city of Shah Jahanabad as old Delhi is called today and the magnificent Taj Mahal. Even as the world is caught in the skirmishes of War and peace, Nuclear and Non-Nuclear; Taj has stood as the epitome of love, which is one of the most visited and most photographed places in the world. The incomparable Taj Mahal built by the Mughal Emperor Shahjahan as a memorial to his wife, Mumtaz Mahal, epitomizes Islamic architecture, in its purest form.
