Watch the Taj Mahal in all its morning glory. Shrouded in mist, this magnificent monument to love captures and entrances the souls of its early morning visitors. From a distance, the Taj Mahal looks like a miniature on the landscape.
It took 22 years and over twenty thousand workers to build this majestic monument. Situated in the ancient city of Agra, the Taj Mahal is entirely crafted from white marble. One of the seven wonders of the world, it is a perfect fusion of Indian and Persian architecture. Semi precious stones are inlaid in the marble in beautiful patterns and within the dome lies the jewel-inlaid cenotaph of the queen.
The Taj Mahal is the personification of the Emperor Shah Jahan’s love for his wife Mumtaz Mahal. The stones of this ancient monument are alive with the passion and ardour of its creator. If there ever was a true symbol of love on Earth, it is this.
