The Taj

Taj Mahal at Agra, India
The Taj Mahal is considered the finest example of Mughal architecture, a style that combines elements from Persian, Indian, and Islamic architectural styles. In 1983, the Taj Mahal became a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was cited as "the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world's heritage."

The Taj was built for the Mughal Empress: Mumtaz Mahal (1593 AD – 1631 AD) by The Emporer Shah Jahan (1592 – 1666). The awesome structure, the monument of love that Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan gave to the world, stands as a testimony of his intense love for his wife.
It is a romance celebrated in marble and glorified with precious and semi-precious stones and that’s the way to appreciate it! Read more at the beautiful site by the Department of Tourism, Government of UP, Uttar Pradesh.
