Hi!-Anyone pls improve/check my writing below pls:-P MANY TXS I’m writing about my pride India’s Taj Mahal. It is still one of the seventh wonders of the world as it’s built entirely of pure white marble. According to me, it’s just like an unique pearl- drop of tear from the paradise. During full moon days, it glows beautifully and it if suspended during foggy mornings,when viewed from across the Jamuna river. In short, its stunning architectural beauty is beyond adequate description, particularly at dawn and sunset.

Hi I am proud to be an Indian.As well as I respect the sentiments of Mr.Jahangir for his wife.But also think that in those days where there poor people of the country,Who worked for it for 22 years.And even heard that Jahangir cut the hands of the architecture of the Taj Mahal.It means it is an example of a Kings monotony.

I have just arrived in India and will be here for a year..... The Taj Mahal is one place I mst definitely wish to visit and I plan to take my Fiance there sometime in 2007. I am in Mumbai though so will have to plan! It is a magnificent structure that ultimately inspires love. There is undoubtedly nothing like it in the world. Maybe the story behind it would be appreciated? I don't know much of the story......

Is it true that the architect who designed and built it was then killed so that he could not build another?

Few days ago I have read a new that Tajmahal was built by Jaipur'king Sawai Man Singh ji not by the Shahjaha is it true. People think that was built by Shahjaha, but they told that its wrong.

for of the sun - for of the sun
Ours I imagine that he is PRETTY! I love the Pro of the sun and think that to see for of the sun in the Taj Mahal he must be PRETTY! Therefore I think that everything is very different. I do not know very on the Taj Mahal, therefore in Brazil always the tragedies, wars are emphasized here, deaths, but they forget the beauty that exist in other places. That it is not spoken on beauty in my country, but I think that is very little ahead of the BEAUTY that this world has.

Tajmahal is considered the seventh wonder of the world even today. it is situated in Agra in northern part of india.You are right,its beauty in full night moon is really gorgeous.earlier, in between, viewing of taj during nights was closed but recently it has started again.One vital thing about taj is it looks the same from any of the directions youyview, as it is asymetrical struture.

Yes, Taj Mahal is still in one of the seven wonders of the world. But unfortunately it is on the way to lose the rank in the wonders. But how can one forget the love behind the construction of Taj Mahal.

The Taj Mahal is a monument located in Agra, India, at 27° 10'28.67"N, 78° 2'32.05"E, constructed between 1631 and 1654 by a workforce of 22,000. The Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan commissioned its construction as a mausoleum for his favourite wife, Arjumand Bano Begum, who is better known as Mumtaz. The Taj Mahal (sometimes called "the Taj") is generally considered the finest example of Mughal architecture, a style that combines elements of Persian, Indian and Islamic. The Taj Mahal has achieved special note because of the romance of its inspiration. While the white domed marble mausoleum is the most familiar part of the monument, the Taj Mahal is actually an integrated complex of structures. its true tht its one of the seven wonders of the world n deserves to be the best of all in terms of beauty.

Taj Mahal was built by mughal emperor shahjahan for his beloved wife mumtaz mahal.It took 22 yrs to built it with 20,000 workers working day and night.the mughal emperor then cut the hands of all those workers so that they could never ever make such beautiful monument in future.It costed 32 million indian rupees at that time.
