Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Wonders of the World, TajMahal is the pride of India.
It a very beautiful building. Some say it is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It was built over three hundred years ago by the mughal emperor shah jahan as a tomb for his wife momtaz mahal. He wanted to make it a perfect building.
 He did not care about how much time or money he spent on it. He brought together workman from all over Asia and employed 20000men to finish it. The building is made of fine marble. It has eight sides and many arches. It rests on a platform of red stones. Four thin white towers or minarets rise from the platform. A large dome rises from the centre. Around this large dome there are four smaller domes. Just inside the outer walls there is an open corridor. From this corridor the visitor looks through carved marble screens to a central room. The bodies of shah jhan and his wife lie in the two graves below this room. A beautiful garden sorrounds the taj mahal the green trees of the garden make the taj mahal marble look whiter. There narrow pool in front of the main entrance to the building. The beautiful of the taj mahal is reflected in the water. Some people think the taj mahal is most beautiful of sunset. Others like it best at noon when the bright sun makes the marble shine pure white. Still others think is should he seen by moonlight. When the moon is full hundreds of people visit the taj mahal to see its soft silver radiance. Many of them spend the right beside the pool.  The taj turns from sliver to gold in the early morning.
