Indians are proud of their most impressive castle, the Taj Mahal. It is also the most romantic story in India history.The crown of palaces is a white marble mausoleum located in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India. Commissioned in 1632 by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan to house the worldly remains of his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal. His loss was terrible and he was in a great depression. Shah Jahan spent 20 years supervising the work of his late wife's Mausoleum. The Taj Mahal stands on the southern bank of the Yamuna River. The mausoleum is widely recognized as "the jewel of Muslim art in India" and remains as one of the world’s most celebrated structures and a symbol of India’s rich history.
This is a perfect example of Mughal architecture, a perfect blend of elements from Islamic, Persian, Ottoman Turkish as well as Indian style.
