Regarded as one of the masterpieces ever built, the Ta Mahal is made with white marble which makes it glisten in the sun and makes for quite the sight when strolling through Agra. The mausoleum which was built by Shah Jahan who was a Mughal emperor, was later dedicated to the memory of his 3rd wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Showcasing a wide range of architectural styles that add to its charm, the Taj Mahal was declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983. When one decides to embark on a tour of the complex, one will be met by passages of the Qu’ran which have been used to decorate the entirety of the premises. However the calligraphy found on the Great Gate must not be missed out on. The highlight of your holiday here would definitely be the Cenotaphs found in the interior of the complex which houses the tombs of the great emperor and his wife. Inlaid with precious and semi-precious gems, the caskets are simply in design but are made complete with calligraphy. Take long walks on the well maintained walkways alongside the reflecting pool which would be a great opportunity capture the surroundings on camera. The red sandstone walls that protect the Taj Mahal are simply beautiful to look at and you would feel as you are being transported to a Mughal period, rich in cultural influences and experiences.
