We have reached Agra and without telling you can guess the first destination we would be exploring. It is none other than Taj Mahal, one of the seven world wonders that exists in India, the symbol of Love, the great architecture built by the mughal emperor Shahjahan for his love Mumtaz. The great wonder is located in the Agra region of the Indian State Uttar Pradesh. Taj Mahal is added to the UNESCO World Heritage Site apart from being part of the World Wonders. The Taj Mahal is an ivory-white marble mausoleum on the south bank of the Yamuna river in the Indian city of Agra. It was build during 1632 – 1653 by around 20000 men under the guidance of the Mughal dynasty and mainly the emperor Shah Jahan. In 1631, Mumtaz Mahal died after giving birth to the couple’s 14th child. The grieving Shah Jahan, known for commissioning a number of impressive structures throughout his reign, ordered the building of a magnificent mausoleum across the Yamuna River from his own royal palace at Agra.
It is definitely a wonderful experience visiting, seeing and being able to get inside and touch this World Wonder. As every Indian, it was our dream to visit Taj Mahal and it came true during our New Delhi Trip(Watch videos of the entire trip from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TfRK_85gn58&list=PLEx12u0BpT4u3_qgyHtd_MePUSfxXBa1A) This architectural beauty which was built in the 17th century has a lot of hard work and brain behind it by the emperor Shah Jahan. Shahab-ud-din Muhammad Khurram, better known by his regnal name Shah Jahan, was the fifth Mughal emperor, who reigned from 1628 to 1658. His reign represented the height of the Mughal architecture, most notably the Taj Mahal.
