About The Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal – perhaps one of the most extravagant monuments to love ever built and an enduring symbol of India that easily tops any traveller’s wish list. Built by the order of Emperor Shah Jahan in the 17th century in affectionate memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz, this iconic marble mausoleum has been named one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World and continues to draw throngs of travellers and locals alike. It took some 20,000 labourers and craftsmen 22 years to build the Taj and every detail is absorbing: the classical gardens, the reflecting pool and the elaborate patterns of semiprecious stones decorating the white marble. The design is based upon the traditions of Mughal and Persian architecture and the most spectacular feature is the white marble onion shaped dome above the tomb, which has the entire Koran is inscribed on it. Inside the Great Moghul and his wife are buried side by side and the interior walls and floors are decorated with flowered mosaics, black marble and semi precious stones.
