Taj Mahal is a symbol of love and is located in Agra, India. Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan had built the great monument of Taj Mahal in memory of his wife Mumtaz. Taj Mahal was constructed over a period of twenty-two years, employing twenty thousand workers. It was completed in 1648 C.E. at a cost of 32 Million Rupees. Taj Mahal is built entirely of white marble. Its stunning architectural beauty is beyond adequate description, particularly at dawn and sunset. The Taj seems to glow in the light of the full moon. On a foggy morning, the visitors experience the Taj as if suspended when viewed from across the Yamuna River, Taj mahal situated at the bank of river Yamuna. Taj mahal is the favorite place for all lovers in the world, because it is a live example of everlasting love. Taj mahal is considered as the finest example of mughal architecture. Taj Mahal makes Agra very popular. People from around the world come to India to view this great legend. According to a report of BBC, more than 3 million people visited the great Taj Mahal in 2004, making Taj one of the most popular international attractions in India. The Taj mahal was build up by using material from all over the Asia and over 1000 elephants were used to transport building material during construction. Rajasthan played a major role in building of Taj Mahal. All white marble was brought from Rajasthan. According to a legend Shah Jahan planned another Taj Mahal in black marble across the Jamuna River but his son Aurangzeb threw him in to jail before the Black Taj Mahal could be built. My thought about Taj mahal is …………………… I am Loving It. Love is when you take away the feeling, the passion, and the romance in a relationship and find out you still care for that person.
