Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal is an ivory marble mausoleum that was created to house the tomb of the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan's late wife, Mumtaz Mahal, in 1632. This breathtaking structure is often regarded as one of the world's seven wonders and has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The gorgeous architectural beauty on display at this breathtaking structure is truly unmatched across the globe.

The glittering marble Taj Mahal is the ultimate monument to love. The building is a mausoleum built by Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan, for his wife, Mumtaz, in the 17th century. The monument is at its best at sunrise or sunset when the white marble embedded with precious stones and Islamic calligraphy turns rose or gold.
