Taj Mahal is the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world’s heritage. Tour with us to the immense mausoleum of white marble built in Agra between 1631 and 1648 by order of the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his favourite wife.
Experience the uniqueness of Taj Mahal that lies in some truly remarkable innovations carried out by the horticulture planners and architects of Shah Jahan. One such genius planning is the placing of the tomb at one end of the quadripartite garden rather than in the exact centre, which added rich depth and perspective to the distant view of the monument. It is also, one of the best examples of raised tomb variety. The tomb is further raised on a square platform with the four sides of the octagonal base of the minarets extended beyond the square at the corners.
