TAJ MAHAL: The Wonder of the World.



Taj Mahal: The Architectural Wonder

Taj Mahal is a monument of art and Love. It was built in 1648 by the Mughal Emperor, who wanted an unmatched monument in remembrance of his beloved wife Mumtaz. So he invited architects from all over the famous places and created the fusion of Persian, Turkish and Indian architecture: The Taj Mahal. The two words Taj and Mahal means the "Crown of Palaces.

The Grand Entrance of Taj Mahal

The beauty of Taj captures our hearts at the time we enter into its main gate, that is half a Km away from main building. But once we climb the steps of the main platform and stand before the gate, we cannot keep our eyes away from it.

The Interior Beauty of Taj Mahal

After crossing the entrance, and the covering wall, we would reach to the most beautiful place: the two tombs of Emperor Shah Jehan and his wife Mumtaz Mahal. The architecture depicted on the precious marble stones here is one of the best examples of Islamic and Indian art. The floral designs executed by the master craftsmen of the time are heart capturing. The room of the toms would create a feel of beauty of art and piousness of religious flavour, too. We can see the writing selected from Holy Koran inscribed on the walls of Taj Mahal. These writing s are selected with much care and inscribed on the walls with precision.

The amazing element while seeing The Taj we would find is that there is no space in the entire monument that is not marvelously carved and fitted with precision. Every inch of the edifice is covered either by white marble of high price or by the floral designs.
