In the memory of his beloved wife “Mumtaz”, Shah Jahan, the 5th Mughal emperor of India built this symbol of eternal love in 1648 and later in 1983 Taj Mahal became the UNESCO World Heritage Site and the sole entry from India to the present Wonders of the World as the 7th entry. The white marble mausoleum took 22 years to complete. The design was inspired by Islamic, Turkish, Indian and Persian style of planning. The dome of the Mahal is surrounded by 4 minarets on each of the sides. The plant motifs, Persian poem calligraphy, incised paintings and carvings are so stunning that one might never recover from the shock of seeing something so beautiful.
