India's rich tribute to womanhood. This brilliant marble structure took
over 21 years to make and is the best jewel of art and architecture of
the Mughal age. Famous for its artistic beauty, this spendthrift
building of timeless beauty is the outcome of a fashionable combination
of passion and architectural enthusiasm. Taj Mahal of Agra stands on the

Taj Mahal is the tomb of the Mughal Empress Mumtaz Mahal. After
22 years, and the mutual effort of over 20,000 labors and
master craftsmen, the tomb was finally completed in 1648 AD on the banks
on the river Yamuna in Agra, the 17th century capital of the
Mughal monarchs. The colors of the Taj Mahal change at different hours
of the day and during different seasons. The Taj Mahal of Agra is
pinkish in the morning, milky white in the evening and golden when the
moon shines. Like a jewel, the Taj Mahal sparkles in moonlight when the
semi-precious stones inlaid into the white marble on the main tomb catch
the shine of the moon. These changes, they say, represents the different
moods of woman. The source of the name "Taj Mahal" is not
