The Taj Mahal (ताज महल) is considered one of the seven wonders of the world. Tourists flock to India just to see the Taj Mahal (ताज महल).
When you look head on, the Taj Mahal (ताज महल) looks like a palace or a mansion. In reality, it’s actually a mausoleum or a place to bury dead people. The Taj Mahal (ताज महल) was builty by Emperor Shah Jahan and was a tribute to his wife Mumtaz Mahal. Not to kill the romance, the Taj Mahal (ताज महल) was built for political reasons as well. The magnificence of the Taj Mahal (ताज महल) demonstrated the Emperor’s power and wealth; which cemented his authority over the kingdom.
In front of the Taj Mahal (ताज महल) is a pool that reflects the image of the Taj Mahal (ताज महल). It’s really beautiful under moon light. The Taj Mahal (ताज महल) is made of white marble and is decorated with gilded bronze and gold letters. The walls and ceilings are written in Persian script. The designs were created by calligraphy artists who wrote passages from poetry.
There are also flower and plant motifs carved into the walls. I’ve been to the Taj Mahal (ताज महल) several times. The work is so detailed that I always find new things to look at every time I am there. Not only is the Taj Mahal (ताज महल) magnificant on the outside, it’s magnificant on the inside. The Taj Mahal (ताज महल) is an amazing feat of engineering. It was built by thousands and thousands of workers, artists and craftsman. Over 1000 elephants were used to haul the marble to the site. The whole thing took more than 20 years to build.
I’ll give you a couple of tourist tips. Just so you know, be prepared to walk long distances. The Taj Mahal (ताज महल) is big, I mean really big. Not only that, no cars are allowed on the site, which means you either walk to the site or take an electric powered bus. Too much gasoline pollution will ruin the marble walls of the Taj Mahal (ताज महल), and prohibiting cars is a way to counteract the marble decay. Also, the security is tight. Try not to bring anything suspicious, like a Swiss army knife. Purses, cameras, and cell phones are allowed. They may search your bags, so just to be on the safe side, don’t bring anything “dangerous”.
