So I must tell you the real story of why Taj Mahal was built, Taj Mahal was commissioned in 1632 by the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan (reigned 1628–1658), to house the tomb of his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. The tomb is the centerpiece of a 42-acre complex, which includes a mosque and a guest house, and is set in formal gardens bounded on three sides by acreaneted walls.
The gardens were teeming with tourists, but it’s such an expansive space that it didn’t feel over-crowded (at least not on our visit).
The ten-minute stroll from the gate to the Taj, through Persian-inspired gardens, lined with trees, fountains, and a reflecting pool running down the center, seemed pleasantly designed to give the viewer more time to take in the gorgeous building from a slowly changing perspective.
So this brings to an end of my one of the best visits in this country hope you enjoyed reading this.
