Taj Mahal means "Crown Palace” and is in fact the most beautiful tomb in the world. The marble wonder is the largest and the most extravagant mausoleum built for the sake of love by a person. The grandeur & glory of Taj has reached every corner of the world. This timeless piece of art has been the inspiration for many artists & architects, ever since its creation. Taj, the wonder of the world was the result of hard efforts of 20,000 people who worked day & night, to create this marble beauty. The material was brought in from all over India & central Asia & it took a fleet of 1,000 elephants to transport it to the site. Ustad Ahmad Lahori was the chief architect of the project. The dome in white marble is set against the plain across the river & it is this background that changes the view of the marble structure. The background of water works its magic of colours through their reflection. The colour change at different time of the day & during different seasons. The Taj sparkles like a jewel in moonlight when the semi – precious stones infixed into the white marble structure on the main mausoleum catch the glow of the moon.
