The Taj Mahal situated on the ancient city, Agra in Uttar Pradesh, India, is a beautifully crafted white marble monument to love. The Taj Mahal is one of the seven wonders of the world. It is a mausoleum built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jehan for his beloved queen Begum Mumtaz Mahal as a symbol of love.

The structure of Taj Mahal is a perfect fusion of Indian and Persian architecture. The dome is made of white marble. The Taj has been constructed on a huge marble platform. The entire portion is enclosed within a boundary wall with broad octagonal pavilions at the corners.

Semi precious stones are inlaid in the marble in beautiful patterns and this craftsmanship is known as pietra dura. Within the dome lies the jewel-inlaid cenotaph of the queen.
