“For Rabindranath Tagore, Taj was ‘a tear on the cheek of time everlasting, and like Tagore a huge number of sightseers, even today find the motivation to visit the Taj Mahal every year and feel overwhelmed before its everlasting magnificence.”

What is the History of Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal was worked by Mughal Emperor, Shah Jahan, in memory of his beloved Mumtaz Mahal who died in 1631 while bringing forth their fourteenth kid. Mumtaz, Shah Jahan’s third spouse, was known for her exceptional beauty, and shah Jahan was known to be a real lover with regard to her.

“shah Jahan was known to be a real lover with regard to her.”

Despondent by her abrupt demise, the sovereign, it is accepted, becomes silver-haired in only one evening. Work on the Taj started in 1632, yet it wasn’t until 1653 that the entire landmark met up in its present structure.

Taj Mahal: A UNESCO World Heritage Site

Yet, as destiny would have it, before long the Taj was assembled Shah Jahan was ousted by his child Aurangazeb who held him, detainee, in the Agra Fort, where he spent the remainder of his year’s longing for the Taj. Shah Jahan after his demise in 1666 was covered alongside his adored Mumtaz in the Taj Mahal.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1983 for being the “jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world’s heritage”, an army of 20,000 artisans from across India, Central Asia and Europe were employed to work on the Taj.
