Taj Mahal is a tomb that was built out of love of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan for his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal.
Taj Mahal is located next to Yamuna River in Agra, India. The tomb is made of white marble and decorated by jewelry. It took 22 years to finish the construction. There was a rumor that the key architecture, Ustad Isa, was executed after the tomb was finished as the Emperor didn’t want him to build any other place that was more beautiful than the Taj Mahal.
Its beauty and the power of the Emperor’s love has been widely talked about all over the world. That is the reason why millions of tourists (local and international) keep visiting the place.
Though time has passed hundreds and hundreds years, I believe that every visitor would still feel the great love of Emperor Shah Jahan.
This monument of great love shall stay in our hearts forever. And I believe that it is waiting for everyone to visit.
