Taj Mahal: An Introduction

Taj Mahal, is one of the most splendid master pieces of architecture in the world. Located in the city of Agra, in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, on the banks of the Yamuna River.. It was bespoke by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, the son of Jahangir, as a tomb for his wife, Arjumand Banu Begum, also known as Mumtaz-ul-Zamani. It took 23 years to complete (1630 - 1653).

Taj Mahal: History

Shah Jahan & Mumtaz were married in 1612 A.D. The Empress Mumtaz used to go with her husband in his military campaigns, and it was in Burhanpur in 1630, that she gave birth to her last child, after which she died. So in memory of his wife Mumtaz, he ordered the building of the most beautiful mausoleum on Earth, THE TAJ MAHAL, one of the wonders of the earth.

Construction work began in early 1630 and completed in 1648.  All sculptors, masons, craftsmen, and calligraphers were called from Persia, Ottoman Empire and Europe to make the TAJ MAHAL a real symbol of Great Emperor Shah Jahan' feelings for her wife.

The architectural complex of the Taj Mahal comprises of five main elements:

1) Darwaza or main gateway,

2) Bageecha or garden,

3) Masjid or mosque,

4) Naqqar Khana or rest house,

5) Rauza or the Taj Mahal mausoleum.

The actual Tomb of Mumtaz is situated inside the Taj. The unique mughal style architecture combines elements & styles of Persian, Central Asian, and Islamic architecture. Most striking are the black and white chessboard marble floor, the four tall minarets (40 m high) at the corners of the structure, and the majestic grand dome in the middle. On closer inspection, the lettering of the Holy Quran verses around the archways appear to be uniform. The lettering spacing and density has been customized to give this impression to the viewer. The impressive pietra dura artwork includes geometric elements & style, plants & flowers, which are common in Islamic architecture. The level of sophistication in artwork includes a 3 cm decorative element containing more than 50 inlaid gemstones.

"The interior of the building is dimly lit through pierced marble lattices and contains a virtuoso display of carved marble. Externally the building gains an ethereal quality from its marble facings, which respond with extraordinary subtlety to changing light and weather."
