Taj Mahal is highly praised as the apex of medieval architectures. It resides over the shifting sands of the
pleasant and pure Yamuna. On your visit to the Taj Mahal, you will be bowled over by the mesmerizing play
of colors that can be viewed only if you stay there for an entire day. The pink hue of the morning changes to
pearly cream by noon and then appears in the most dazzling white shade during the moonlight. See it, to
believe it!

The Taj Mahal is one of the finest examples of Mughal architecture. Its construction utilizes the best elements
of Islamic, Persian and Indian craftsmenship to lend it unsurpassed beauty. The Mughal emperor Shah Jahan
built this dream in white marble for his dearly loved wife Mumtaz Mahal, which is why this tomb is regarded
to be an epitome of love.

example of eternal love while walking in the middle of lush green manicured gardens. You will feel as if you

background that works wonders for its change of colors during different times of a day.

The spotless marble floor of the tomb embraces a captivating calligraphy and the mosaic work is embellished
using precious stones. Once you enter inside, the elaborate marble designs adorned with semi-precious stones
will catch your attention. They are indeed overwhelming. Ask your Taj Mahal travel guide to show you some
extraordinary magical charms and fanciful optical effects which form an illusion. While walking on the sun-
kissed marble floors, gaze at Yamuna to see how silently the glistening emerald waters flow in the shadow of
the past. The Taj Mahal, Agra tour must be extended till the dusk. Believe me, the sheer white magic spread
by the moonlight deserves your time.

colourful array of unique stalls that adorn the lush terrain. The entire setting pulsates with kite festival, art and
craft malls, meetings of historians and tourism marts.
