Must see · World heritage site · Architectural Building · Historic Site
One of the most iconic sites on the planet, Taj Mahal stands as an enduring and remarkable example of Islamic architecture in the country--it's also a World Heritage Site. Constructed between 1632 and 1653 by Emperor Shah Jahan, the mausoleum pays tribute to his beloved wife. Visit the expansive complex on the banks of the river and marvel at the 73 m (240 ft) tall structure and its surrounding minarets, covered in distinctive white marble. Explore the grounds and take in the view of the world-renowned structure, complete with a bulbous dome, from multiple angles. Note the Islamic calligraphy, colorful lattice works, raised motifs, and tiles adorning the exterior of the building. Afterwards, step under the main dome to see a vaulted ceiling above the intricately carved tombs of the Shah and his wife.

  • Greatest pride of India , symbolic of eternal love, marvelous and perfect blend of artistic and architectural beauty, having much historical importance and cultural value , to visit the lovely monument of 'World's Wonder" is the dream of everyone. For keeping the heritage for the generation proper maintenance is taken. Control of tourists with proper arrangements, security measures and facilities are appreciable. Without fading the glory to save from environment pollution and to keep nearby clean, safe, secure and protected is the need of the time and to be preserved for millennium, ages and the generation to come. Avoid visiting Friday being holiday. Noticed the increasing crowd for which measures to be taken. To save it from pollution and preserve its beauty , safety and security is the need of the time
  • Really a beautiful and mesmerizing place to spend your time with your loved ones. Every inch tells you one beautiful, technical n marvellous story. You should recruit a guide or do a proper research then enter to feel the efforts and brain used. Whole day is not just enough to enjoy this fully. Please don't forget to take pics from different angles. Recruit a photographer if you can afford to seize the beautiful memories forever..but do proper negotiations. You must visit once in your life time.
