Tajmahal (01), Agra

The beautiful Taj Mahal is an eternal creation of Mughal Badshah (Emperor) Shahjahan to show the 'Mark of Love' to this World for the memory of his beloved Begam (Wife) Mumtaj who died at her age of only 38 years in 1631. Shahjahan was shocked and leaving all the luxury he lived a very simple life and within a year started the construction of this Memorial in an Indo-Persian Architecture using White Marbles. The Taj Mahal complex (580M x 300M) had taken about 22 years (1632-1654) to complete with the help of 20 thousand laborers and an expenditure of 4,000,000 Pounds.
