Taj Mahal A Tribute To A Beautiful Wife

The Taj Mahal is extensively wellthought- out as one of the utmost stunning structures ever created. The beautiful marble building in Agra, India, is a tomb, an enduring monument to the love of a husband for his favorite wife. The epitome of Mughal art and the most famous monument in the world, Taj Mahal was built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan. It took 17 years for the monument complex to be completed in 1648. The mausoleum is located on the right bank of the river Yamuna, at the point where it takes a sharp turn. It is the finest example of style that combines elements from Islamic, Persian, Ottoman Turkish and Indian architectural styles.

Lovers from across the world, comes to see the monument of love and romance to admire its radiant beauty. The best view of Taj Mahal is said to be under the light of full moon, shimmering like a fairytale castle.

As a tribute to a beautiful woman and as a memorial for enduring love, the Taj Mahal exposes its delicacies when one visits it without being in a hurry. The rectangular base of Taj Mahal is in itself emblematic of the different sides from which to view.

The dome is made of white marble, but the tomb is set against the plain across the river and it is this background that works its magic of colours that, through their reflection, change the view of the Taj. The colours change at different hours of the day and during different seasons. Like a jewel, the Taj sparkles in moonlight when the semi-precious stones inlaid into the white marble on the main mausoleum catch the glow of the moon. The Taj is pinkish in the morning, milky white in the evening and golden when the moon shines. These variations, they say, depict the different moods of woman.

Different people have different views of the Taj Mahal but it would be enough to say that the Taj has a life of its own that leaps out of marble, provided you appreciate that it is a monument of love. As an architectural masterpiece, nothing could be added or subtracted from it. The Taj Mahal remains closed on every Friday!

How to Get There

The city of Agra is accessible by bus, train, and (limited) air service and has a wide range of tourist amenities. Access to the Taj Mahal complex is on foot

When to Visit

The Taj Mahal is a year round magnetism and every so often busy, though new ticketing systems have thinned visitors at peak times. Visitors in search of more seclusion might try approaching early or late in the day. One time not to visit this beauty is on Friday, when the Taj Mahal is closed.

How to Visit

The tomb’s inner is a prominent space that craves some easygoing exploration. But a good part of any visit to the Taj Mahal will be spent watching at the building from the outside.
