The Taj Mahal was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, in the memory of his beloved queen Mumtaz, somewhere in the 1630’s-1650. The monument, since then, has left lovers and others mesmerized alike. Built in pure white marble, the Taj stands on the banks of river Yamuna. It is an architectural wonder, with its perfectly rounded domes, and the four minarets that stand around the mausoleum. The Taj was built by an Iranian architect, Ustad Isa, and the passion and feelings with which it was built can still be felt on seeing it.

History says that Mumtaz, who died while she was with the Emperor in a battlefield, asked him for four promises, out of which one was to build a magnificent symbol of their love. The Emperor, who was said to be so sad that his hair grew white in a few days after Mumatz’s death, committed himself to build such a wonder that would tell their story for years to come. And wonder it is, indeed. The Taj Mahal figures in the list of the new Seven Wonders of the World. It is a must-visit place, and will make you stand awe-inspired. “Taj should not be appreciated as a monument, “, as the great English poet Sir Edwin Arnold says, “but as the proud passion of an Emperor’s love wrought in stones”.
