Considered as one of the 8 wonders in the world, the Taj Mahal is a mausoleum located in Agra, India, that was built under Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal.


The Taj Mahal (also "the Taj") is considered the finest example of Mughal architecture, a style that combines elements from Persian, Turkish, Indian, and Islamic architectural styles.


Nothing can prepare you for when you emerge through the gate and see the Taj Mahal at the end of that long water feature. It's simply breath-taking.


The Taj Mahal has a vast complex comprising of a main gateway, an elaborate garden, a mosque (to the left), a guest house (to the right), and several other palatial buildings. The Taj is at the farthest end of this complex, with the river Jamuna behind it. In some Western Archietects' eyes, the archietectual beauty of the Taj has never been surpassed.


If there is only one reason for one to travel all the way from another side of the world to visit India, it's the Taj Mahal, which by itself, is enough of a reason for all the troubles of travel and endless hours on the airplane.


The Taj Mahal was constructed over a period of twenty-two years, employing twenty thousand workers. It was completed in 1648 C.E.


The beautiful marble work.


Happy to be here.


The side monuments, serving as prayer rooms, offers incredible art works.


Love the design of the gate.
