The Crown Palace or Taj Mahal is actually a magnificent tomb of Shah Jahan’s beloved queen Mumtaz Mahal who bore him 17 children and died young. She had requested her heartbroken husband to build her the world’s best tomb that immortalizes their love as the fulfillment of her last wish. Shah Jahan too left no stone unturned to create a glorious monument that will be looked up to as the Love Temple by couples for centuries to come.
Situated on the banks f River Yamuna, Taj Mahal was built in 1568. It took 20,000 workers 22 years to build such a white marble wonder. World’s best architects, Emperor’s personal directions, use of semi-precious and precious stones in an intricate lacework, and perfect symmetry gave rise attention to a structure that has been the topic of several coffee table books and media coverage. Taj Mahal Tours feature forts and palaces of Rajasthan as well as cultural highlights of the Golden Triangle such as Pushkar Camel Fair.
