Our country is filled with great monuments, each with its own unique history and past. The Mughals, being a patronage of art, brought with them their own unique taste in art and architecture. Many of their monuments that have survived the test of time reflect the grandiosity and stunning architecture that was unique to that era. Taj Mahal though is a jewel in the crown that was Mughal architecture. Renowned for its majestic beauty, the Taj is loved and admired by people all over the world.
The beautiful Taj Mahal has an equally beautiful story behind its creation. Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan dearly loved his stunningly beautiful Begum Mumtaz Mahal. The queen sadly didn’t live for very long though and died giving birth to their 14th child. On her deathbed the grief-stricken emperor promised to build her the grandest and richest mausoleum. The momentous task undertaken by Shah Jahan took over 22 years and labor force of 22,000 workers. The monument was termed ’Taj Mahal’ and till date is the most glorious structure in the nation. This fine piece of architecture draws a horde of tourist everyday.
