Taj Mahal

City: Agra       State: N/A       Country: India
Recently, the Taj was voted amongst the Seven Wonders of the World. The Taj Mahal was built by Emperor Shah Jahan as the final resting place of hi favourite queen, Mumtaz Mahal. A monument of marble, it is perhaps Indias most fascinating and beautiful monument. Built by Persian architect Ustad Isa this perfectly symmetrical monument took 22 years (AD 1630-52) of hard labour and 20,000 workers and jewelers to build. The red sandstone entrance to the Taj has verses from the Koran inscribed on it. The four minarets, its vaulted arches, the inlaid semi-precious stones are just preamble to the central dome of the Taj. Right below this dome are the resting places of Mumtaz Mahal and Shah Jahan. These are just for display, though - far below in a locked basement, hidden from the human eye, the Mughal king and his queen lie in their actual tombs, united in death. Visits are also organized during Full moon nights,which is once in a life time experience.
