One of the most iconic sites on the planet, Taj Mahal stands as an enduring and remarkable example of Islamic architecture in the country--it's also a World Heritage Site. Constructed between 1632 and 1653 by Emperor Shah Jahan, the mausoleum pays tribute to his beloved wife. Visit the expansive complex on the banks of the river and marvel at the 73 m (240 ft) tall structure and its surrounding minarets, covered in distinctive white marble. Explore the grounds and take in the view of the world-renowned structure, complete with a bulbous dome, from multiple angles. Note the Islamic calligraphy, colorful lattice works, raised motifs, and tiles adorning the exterior of the building. Afterwards, step under the main dome to see a vaulted ceiling above the intricately carved tombs of the Shah and his wife.

Someone has rightly said that it's better to visit once than hearing it n number of times. One of the Wonders out of 7. The identity of India Taj Mahal. It's the sign of Love. And if you want to feel it, then do visit this place. It's not the place to visit alone, like I did🙁. It's really peaceful place. When you go through the Great Taj Mahal and seat down behind it with the river view and the cool breeze and obviously the Great Taj itself, it feels really amazing. It is the most peaceful place I have ever visited. The vibes here are really romantic and full of love. I really felt so overwhelmed, heartsick here. Do visit this place with your loved ones.
Beautiful as expected. General ticket is 50 rupees but if you want to go inside then ticket price is 250. Wonderful architecture. You will see works on pillars that shows as if its 3d, but actually its flat surface. If you look at Taj mahal through the gate while entering from the middle lane you will feel like its moving far as you go closer. There are separate tickets available for night view during full moon(5 days) which you can avail from the local officials.
