Taj Mahal came into existence by the then Emperor, Shah Jahan. The idea, which prompted the Emperor to come with such a beautiful Monument, was in wake of his wife's demise. Since his wife was dear to him, he dedicated the monument in the name of her.

Taj Mahal was completed in its construction in a period of 22 years. The number of workers who were involved in the construction of this monument was nearly 20 thousand. Apart from the mentioned workers, there were other renowned Muslim craftsmen who came from Baghdad, Bukhara, and Shiraz and worked on many specialized tasks.

What makes the monument ever more beautiful is the fact that stands on a raised, square platform making it ideal in terms of view. The 186 x 186 feet platform is one of the best ways to enjoy the most impressive monuments.

With four truncated corners, it forms an unequal octagon. It uses the principles of self-replicating geometry and that is what renders it immaculate beauty.

Then there are four graceful, slender minarets that are immensely beautiful and make things look simply gorgeous.
