One look at TAJ is not enough to admire the work done on this monuments,the carving, grand design plan, beautiful decorations and skills of twentythousand workers who helped to built this grand beauty of love and yes love is eternal to person who's heart was sparked to built this monument. No money and expense were spared in building TAJ, the construction money is believed to be Rs3 million, equivalent to about US$70million in present world. In todays world of war and greed no single human is worthy of making a monument where you can spend whole day admiring and thinking how and who can create an idea of building such great monument.TAJ itself is a great poem and a dream of Shah Jahah for his love to his wife Mumtaz.

Emperor Shah Jahan was heartbroken when his wife Mumtaz of 17years died in childbirth after producing 14 children, Construction of Taj started in same year in 1631 and as completed in 1653.
You need to enter the Taj early in the morning as its empty and not full of tourist,so you can enjoy this beauty in peace.
Entry is Rs950 with camera and inside the taj video are permitted from entry to the main gate only not all of the taj.
