As you all know about the chronicle of Taj Mahal. Will just brief you.
It is the tomb of queen ‘Mumtaz’ wife of a king of Mughal Emperor ’Shah Jahan’ commissioned beside the bank of the Yamuna river in the city of Agra, India. Constructed from milk-white marble and rose sandstone, and studded with precious jewels, Started in the year 1638 and completed by 1653 took almost 20 years by 20,000 laborers around, with a cost of 32 million approximately (as per 17th century) occupying 42acre of space. It is one of the world heritage by UNESCO .

The bank of Yamuna river was not maintained well, need Govt or NGO’S to take it up, entire river was contaminated with pollution and waste material was dumped all around.
Started from Delhi reached Agra all the way long travelling on Yamuna express for 5 hrs. It’s located center of Agra city where the public is fully crowded and if you were travelling in any private transport , it’s better to leave the vehicle far from it, as parking place is always filled up. Water and photography is allowed, I don’t remember eatable items were allowed. The famous sweet here was ‘Peta’ we can get it in different flavors.
And the moment I saw it, felt how much ‘Shah Jahan’ loved ‘Mumtaz’. Most of them, but not all, In ancient history there were wars for Girl for Love or Beauty or Attraction or Sex. If you have seen this Taj Mahal, by now, you might have understood why those wars were happened. The beauty of expressing a love has no limits……” Taj Mahal”.
