Interesting Facts about the Taj Mahal

Built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal, this ivory-white marble mausoleum is not just a monument but a symbol of eternal love and a masterpiece of Mughal architecture. The construction, which began around 1632, took approximately 20 years to complete, involving a workforce of around 20,000 artisans and craftsmen from across India and Central Asia, guided by a council of architects led by the court architect of the Emperor, Ustad Ahmad Lahauri.

The Taj Mahal complex is spread over 42 acres and is a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1983. Its architectural brilliance is a harmonious blend of Persian, Turkish, and Indian styles. At the heart of the complex is the tomb itself, with a large, white marble dome that reaches a height of around 35 meters. This is flanked by four slender minarets, each standing about 40 meters tall. Intricate inlay work, using precious and semi-precious stones, adorns the exterior and interior, while the surrounding gardens, with their symmetrical beauty, enhance the serenity of the structure.

This monument is not just a testament to the artistic and architectural genius of the Mughal era but also a standing reminder of India’s history, cultural richness, and its ability to inspire awe and admiration through centuries. Every year, millions of visitors from around the globe flock to Agra to witness the timeless beauty of the Taj Mahal, making it one of the most visited tourist attractions in the world. Its allure transcends time and remains a profound symbol of India’s rich heritage.
