The Taj Mahal is quite a site. Seeing the white marble mausoleum on a dish tv Discovery Channel program doesn’t do it justice. It’s much more fulfilling to see it in person.
The Taj Mahal, located in Agra, India, was built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan to honor this third wife, Mumtaz Mahal. The construction began around 1632 and was completed over two decades later in 1653. It was estimated to have cost 32 million Rupees to build at the time. Widely regarded as the crown jewel of Muslim art in India, the Taj Mahal was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983.
The inside of the Taj Mahal is equally as mesmerizing as the outside. The interior walls stand about 82 feet high. All of the calligraphy of the high-domed ceiling in the main chamber is very intricately designed. The tomb, which is the focal point of the entire structure, is a massive, white marble structure standing on a square base.
It’s not too difficult to get to the Taj Mahal if you’re planning a visit. Agra is a popular tourist destination and is well connected by air, road and railway. The Agra Airport is located about 75 miles from the city.
