The Taj Mahal is one of the best manmade creations ever. This magnificent structure also seems to contradict the old saying, ‘Till Death Do Us Part’ – the mighty Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan lies united in death here, with his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal. In fact, this astounding monument was an outcome of grief; heartbroken on Mumtaz’s death, Shah Jahan ordered the construction of the Taj Mahal as a mausoleum for her. Around 20,000 artisans toiled for some 20 years to make Shah Jahan’s dream a reality. Completely made of gleaming white marble, the Taj Mahal casts a spell. At sunrise and sunset, the soft rays tinge its white façade in different colourful hues, while on a full-moon night, it acquires a soft blue shade. A little trivia here – its construction cost in the present-day scenario is estimated to be approximately U.S. $916 million.
