The Taj Mahal, Agra, India, an unforgettable experience!

The Taj Mahal, India

There is really no introduction required for one of the most beautiful man made creations in the world. But here goes - The Taj Mahal was built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in the memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal. The construction of Taj Mehal began in 1632, one year after Mumtaz Mahal's death.The mausoleum was completed in 1648. The beautiful monument was designed by Ustad Ahmad Lahauri. The Taj Mahal is located in Agra in the state of Uttar Pradesh (UP) Inida.

The best time to visit Taj Mahal is during winters. Summers are too hot and because it is always crowded, it certainly helps if the weather is conducive. You wouldn't want to miss any part of this beautiful monument.It is indeed worth spending hours and hours at The Taj Mahal. I believe The Taj Mahal looks absolutely out of the world on a full moon night. If possible, book yourself for a visit to The Taj Mahal on a full moon night.

This is one beautiful monument and the experience is unforgettable!
I plan to visit The Taj Mahal on a full moon night someday soon.
