Inside Taj Mahal

Taj Mahal, the epitome of beauty enthrals the tourists. One of the Seven Wonders of the World, Taj Mahal is just not a marble stone structure; it is a living legend of love and art. Spend a day at Taj to bask in the serenity of the white beauty, which gets never old to the eyes of the lovers. The gateway, mosque and the guest houses on both sides of the memorial are the major parts of Taj Mahal. While the symmetrical structures are harmonious and treat to the eyes, the interiors of Taj are dazzling.

Inside the Taj Mahal

Calligraphy is one of the prime jewels of Taj Mahal. Arabic inscriptions of Quran beautifully handwritten over the white marble stone inlaid with black jasper provide a divine edge to the monument. The arched alcoves and the pilasters adorn the porticos on both sides of the prime memorial while the ripples of the flowing River Yamuna offer an enchanting atmosphere.

As you step into the main chamber of the monument, the Mughal royalty is an open book. This room consists of the false funeral boxes of Mumtaz Mahal and Shah Jahan, while the original graveyards lie much deep below the ground. These boxes are encircled with lattice designed marble screens, while the rest of the surface is embellished with semi-precious stones. The gems are also engraved to form entwined vines, fruits and flowers; the walls of Taj Mahal are colourful paintings of blooming gardens. The lavish lifestyle of the empress is portrayed before you as you pass the antique furniture, classic architecture and intricate designs which adorn the walls and the floors.

Inside View of the Taj Mahal

The floor of Taj Mahalis a geometrical game of black and white marbles, exhibiting octagonal star and cruciform shapes. A room of 24 feet, this chamber is a place where you can echo your words for a long time. Speaking about the art work of Taj Mahal, the interiors are decorated with floral paintings. Tulips, irises, narcissus and daffodils in lavish vases are frozen in the walls of Taj.

Walk down to the burial chamber, lying just beneath the central chamber and you are at last in front of the graveyards of the two love souls, Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan and his Empress, Mumtaz Mahal. In sync with the ethics of Islam, the cenotaphs are not opulent but spiritual. While the cenotaph of Mumtaz Mahal has inscriptions from holy Quran, the side tombs are inscribed with 99 names of Allah. The cenotaph of Shah Jahan is larger than the queen’s but is also simple with designs resembling that of the other sarcophagus.

Hence Taj Mahal is a beautiful blend of elegance and spirituality; a mausoleum in true sense that beckons admirers from far lands. You can also explore Same day Agra tour by Car with Sikandra and Red fort to explore the historical beauty of Agra.
