About Taj Mahal

Taj Mahal had been a well planned dream of Emperor Shah Jahan. Taj Mahal with its ebony base required regular supply of moisture for sustainable strength and hence construction of the same was needed at the banks of River Yamuna. While the rippling waters of River Yamuna feeds the lush green meadows of Taj, the waterways dividing the gardens from four sides also enhance the beauty of the monument.

Agra with its quietness was the perfect place for building a memorial of love and last for the least; it can be easily viewed from Agra Fort, the then resident of Shah Jahan.

Taj Mahal is a UNESCO World Heritage and also one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Besides its spectacular white marble architecture, the floral prints, motifs and carvings of semi-precious stones along with Arabian inscriptions make the monument a historical treasure.

Getting to Agra is also very easy. Being an important tourism centre of the country, there are regular flights, luxury trains, air conditioned bus and personalized cabs available to and fro Agra.
