The Taj Mahal

In the Indian city of Agra, you can find one of the world's magnificent sights, the Taj Mahal. A marble mausoleum on the bank of the Yamuna River, the Taj Mahal was originally commissioned in 1632 by Emperor Shah Jahan to serve as a tomb for his favorite wife. The building took over twenty years to build, and it is a good example of Mughal architecture, which was influenced by multiple cultures. The tomb stands at the center of a huge complex, which also contains a mosque, a guest house, and lavish gardens bordered on three sides by walls. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983, the Taj Mahal is an awe-inspiring example of Muslim art and culture in India. It was described as 'a teardrop on the cheek of eternity' by poet Rabindranath Tagore, 'the embodiment of all things pure' by Rudyard Kipling, and the emperor who commissioned its creation said it made 'the sun and the moon shed tears from their eyes.'
