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.

Taj Mahal reviews
It was an amazing place. A very popular place. A dream come true. I didn’t expect Taj Mahal to be covered in fog in the morning. In the afternoon it was amazing. It’s no wonder it’s a World Heritage..... more »

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.
Absolutely stunning! As it came into view for the first time through the entrance, my breath was taken away and I couldn’t even bother to look through my phone screen for a photo. Quick tip for a good photo - Try and line up the middle sections of the fountain with the middle tip! I noticed just after moving on from the main spot that though my photos looked good, this little check would have provided perfect symmetry. Other nice thing to see is the red Cornelia Inlaid stones translucency in the main chamber. Definitely worth coming early for sunrise or late for sunset.
