Taj Mahal (Agra) – a love story

The Taj Mahal (Hindi: ताज महल Persian/Urdu: تاج محل) is a love story between the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan and his begam (wife) Mumtaz Mahal. An icon of eternal love. The Taj is considered the finest example of Mughal architecture, a style that combines elements from Islamic, Indian and Persian architectural styles. The principal mausoleum was completed in 1648 and the surrounding buildings and garden were finished five years later. Taj Mahal is located in Agra, Uttar Pradesh state (UP), North India.
