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.
