Taj Mahal(타지마할 ; ताज महल)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Perhaps this would be what the visitors coming from Europe would compare with their own preparations.

"India’s representative Islam architecture. It was built on the right shore of Yamuna River in 1631 by the 5th emperor of Mughal dynasty named Shah Jahan for his queen 'Mumtaj Mahal' who died at 36. It took 22 years to be built.

Taj Mahal means 'Mahal’s crown'. The main structure stands on the big rectangular stylobate, and its one side is 56m and the height of the large dome in the center is 58m. At the four corners of the stylobate, there are minarets. The structure is made of bricks in the inside and also white marble attached in the outside. Precious stones colored in black or yellow are decorated here and there.

In the center of the tomb, there are the queen’s tomb and also the king’s right next to it.But the real is enshrined in the underground chamber."
