About Taj Mahal

Agra is defined by the majestic Taj Mahal – a promise of eternal love that Tagore described as ‘a teardrop on the cheek of time.’ This is a symbol of true love that Emperor Shah Jahan had for his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Crafted in white marble, this mausoleum is one of the seven wonders of the world and for all the right reasons! As you walk through the beautifully developed, lush gardens, you reach this grand structure that reinstates your faith in the power of love. Apparently, a total 20,000 artisans worked relentlessly for about 20 years to build what they might not have thought but came to be known as one of the most spectacular buildings of all time. Taj is at its most radiant at early mornings when it takes on a pinkish hue, milky white at evenings and glowing yellow at midnight on a full moon night. It will take a lot more than words to understand why it’s imperative for everyone to visit this at least once in their life.
