"Darwaza-i-Rauza" Top 5 Page for this destination The Taj Mahal Tip by illumina
The Taj Mahal, Agra: 255 reviews and 620 photos
The Taj complex proper is divided into five elements (gateway, gardens, mosque, resthouse and mausoleum) which should be considered in order, culminating with the world-famous mausoleum itself.
The Great Gate, or Darwaza-i-Rauza (Gateway of the tomb), is constructed of red sandstone inlaid with white marble, and stands to the north of the entrance forecourt. It supposedly provides a transition between the worldly (the bazaar) and the spiritual (the gardens, mausoleum and mosque).
Once inside, the arched doorway creates a frame for the beauty of the main building.
