Taj Mahal- The Pride Of India

Taj Mahal is a white mausoleum built by Shah Jahan in the memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal, who died while giving birth to her 14th child. Taj Mahal is a World Heritage Site recognised by UNESCO and ranks first on the list of the new seven wonders of the world. Taj Mahal is of great historic importance to India as well as to the world, because it provides us with a substantial proof about the great techniques used during the Mughal period and of Islamic architecture. Taj Mahal has been referred by many as the epitome of love due to emperor Shah Jahan’s affection towards his most favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal, whose tombstones are embarked deep inside the mausoleum, on the banks of the river Yamuna. Many historians and researchers have termed the architecture of Taj Mahal, as a piece of art. Taj Mahal has given India a global platform of recognition, and several poets and historians have written their versus on the beauty of Taj Mahal.
