The famous mausoleum. Taj Mahal.
Built by the Muslim Emperor for his beloved wife,(ehem! Thr 3rd wife ) Mumtaz Mahal.
The architecture is outstanding.
There's 4 gates to enter the courtyard,
A Mosque for prayer,
Mehman Khana a space for female,
Hundreds of guesthouses,
Gardens, fountains and so much more!
It's brilliant to have other built by red sand stone,
And the Taj Mahal glows when it's the only ivory white marble standing tall in the middle.
That WOW effect.
There's no painting, just half-inch semi precious stone carved in it,
Meticulous flower carved on huge marble pieces carved to perfection,
And much more crazy stuff that I can't digest fully till today.
But the biggest questions is : why built a monumental tombs, with semi precious stone from all over the world to proof his love to a dead queen?
