An immense mausoleum of white marble, built in Agra between 1631 and 1648 by order of the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his favourite wife, the Taj Mahal is the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world's heritage.
Taj Mahal is like the Mt. Everest - majestic, splendid, no words can describe the 'right' marvel of it. Eyes can make one feel within one own self and cannot give just the 'right' words to express what it actually is - as one cannot describe GOD!
the place - the ambience of Taj Mahal - is like heaven on earth. Outstanding and totally different from anything earthly.

I was born in India but was raise away and so when I was 20, my parents took me and my siblings back to India to show us the place where we were born and a little history about a country we did not know much about. I liked the history in agra and the Taj Mahal was not only beautiful, but amazing from the story behind it to the way it was built. You have to go and visit and ask about the four columns that surround the main building...I will leave you in suspense and so NOW you have to go visit!
Last year I went to Agra, India and saw the Taj Mahal. I thought it was so amazing to be that close to something so beautiful. I travel around a lot. I have seen the Statue of Liberty, the Sydeny Opera House, the Effiel Tower, and the Big Ben. The Taj Mahal was absolutely the most beautiful place ever. It is in India, God's own country. India is so beautiful. The people there are very hospitable. There are so many natural wonders there too. Experiencing Agra is so amazing; there is fresh air, friendly people and beauty all around you. So many beautiful sights, smells, sounds, tastes, feelings overcame me there. I will remember this place forever.
