  • The rajputana Sheraton at Jaipur and the Jaypee Palace were excellent but The Park in Delhi, wasn't in the same level, the public spaces like corridor were dirty.
    Excellent experience guided and suggested by an excellent tour conductor. Thanks a lot.

Agra Taj Mahal Taj Mahal in Agra Taj Mahal

Someone rightly said, 'see the Taj and die' and the Taj certainly surpasses this thought. Described as the most spectacular monuments ever built for love, Taj Mahal is the Agra fascination and greatest pride of India. One of the legendary Indian poet - Rabindranath Tagore described its beauty as "a teardrop on the face of eternity". It was built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as a memorial for his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who died after giving birth to their 14th child in 1631. Around 20,000 workers devoted day and night to construct this magnificent monument.


A Taj Mahal Tour takes you to the costliest tomb ever built on this earth. Specialists were brought in from Europe and other Asian counties to produce the exquisite marble screens and pietra dura made with the thousands of semi precious stones. It is said that Shah Jahan also wanted to built a black Taj Mahal as a tomb for himself on the opposite side if the river Yamuna. Locals guides are found saying that he want to portray his negative image, when his own son Aurangzeb threw him into the jail, but sadly he could not afford his grandiose plans.


Taj is the monument of love, so its each and every detail has been conceptualized with utmost care and meaning. The architects and builders made it a point not to confront the viewer with the mind boggling all at once. So they made the entry through a dazzling arched gateway inscribed with verses from Koran. The credit of designing this spectacular mausoleum goes to the architect Ustad Isa Khan Effendi from Iran. The best marble was transported from Makrana in Rajasthan, and the precious stones came from Afghanistan, Persia and Central Asia. Taj Mahal Tourism is not just about knowing the Monument of Love, but also a city that continues to hold the Mughal Heritage close to its heart.


History of Construction of the Taj

Going by the statistics, about 20,000 labours were employed and 32 million rupees were spent to raise this masterpiece. Special architects were hired to make the monument stand out and appear as one of its kind. Taj Mahal was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983 for being an impressive example of Mughal architecture. It was also declared a winner of the New 7 Wonders of the World (2000–2007) initiative.

Tonga Ride

Although the pollution free motor cars are available, but nothing can match the pleasure of a tonga ride. You will find large number of tonga riders, and choose from any one for sightseeing. The tonga buggies are quite comfortable and are well decorated, giving you the feel of the royal era.

Photography

The most brilliant feature of Taj Mahal is its tomb. Nearly 35 metres high, the dome is made up of white marble and looks like a lotus flower. The exteriors of the monument feature eye catching Mughal architecture with elements made using paint, stucco, stone, inlays and carvings. The inside of Taj Mahal is equally beautiful and makes many jaws drop out of fascination. A large 300-metre square charbagh or Mughal garden around the monument looks fascinating with raised pathways, reflecting pool, avenues of trees and fountains.


Taj Mahotsav

Taj Mahotsav is the ten day nonstop carnival that falls in the month of February every year. It is organised at Shilpgram near to the Taj Mahal. The major highlights of the mahotsav are rich art and craft work traditional music and dance, as well as authentic Indian cuisine presented from different region of the country.
