Counted among the Seven Wonders of the World and also known as the Symbol of Love, Taj Mahal is a beautiful monument built in white marble. The story dates back to 350 years when Mumtaj Mahal, wife of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan died while giving birth to their 14th child. The Emperor decided to build something equally beautiful as his wife and the construction of Taj Mahal started.
It took 25,000 laborers around 22 years to build this mesmerizing monument. Since it was a result of the love of an emperor for his wife, the monument soon got the pride of being the Symbol of Love. Stunned with its unparalleled beauty, it was later included into the Seven Wonders of the World.
The graves of Shah Jahan and Mumtaj Mahal exist in the center of the tomb from where they see the world appreciating their pure love.
