The Taj actually stands on two plinths or platforms. The lower one is of red sandstone which stretches from the mosque to the Jawab. The second is a white marble platform which stands 6.7 metres off the ground and is a perfect square measuring 57 metres and also supports the four minarets which stand on either corner.
