Located on the bank of the Yamuna River, Taj Mahal, built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, encompasses about 17 hectares of land. It was built in the fondest memory of Shah Jahan’s beloved wife. The construction started around 1632 AD and completed in 1648 AD. The guest house, the mosque, and the outer courtyard were added later on during 1653 AD. Being considered as the greatest architectural achievement, Taj Mahal constitutes a rhythmic beauty. The name of Taj Mahal is a tribute to Shan Jahan’s beloved spouse, Mumtaz Mahal, which means ‘Crown Palace’. The colour combination of the sky over it and the lush green pathway depicts the ever changing moods of this particular beauty!
