Good to know things about Taj Mahal

Symbol of Love

The Taj Mahal was erected in commemoration of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan's loving wife Mumtaz Mahal. Mumtaz Mahal died in childbirth in 1631, leaving Shah Jahan heartbroken. The Taj Mahal's construction began in 1632, and it took approximately 20,000 artisans and labourers 20 years to complete the monument. The Taj Mahal is widely regarded as one of the world's most powerful emblems of love.

Architectural Marvel

The Taj Mahal is a Mughal architectural masterpiece. The white marble mausoleum is embellished with elaborate sculptures and semi-precious stone inlays. The Taj Mahal's main dome stands about 115 feet tall and is encircled by four lesser domes. The monument is a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its symmetry and perfection in design.

Changing Colors

The Taj Mahal's colour can change during the day and with the seasons. It looks to have changing hues depending on the time of day, such as a gentle pinkish tint in the morning, a brilliant white during the day, and a golden glow at sunset. The changing angles of the light and the reflective characteristics of the marble cause this phenomena.

Minarets Tilt Outward

The Taj Mahal's four minarets (tall towers) are slightly slanted outward. This architectural element is deliberate and serves a functional purpose. In the event of an earthquake, the minarets are constructed to collapse away from the main tomb, thereby protecting it from damage.
