Taj Mahal is One of the Most Visited Tourist Destinations in the World

Post by priyanka » Sat Sep 28, 2019 12:58 pm

Situated in Agra, the Taj Mahal is one of the most beautiful monuments in the world. It was built by Shah Jahan in memory of his wife, Mumtaz Mahal. The white domed marble mausoleum is among the seven wonders of the world and is today one of the most visited tourist destinations in India.

The architecture is known for its symmetry and details. The monument sits on a raised platform surrounded by four minarets. The marble dome that surmounts the tomb has a height of around 35 meters. Inside are delicate mosaic works and marble walls adorned with intricate patterns of inlaid precious stones. The minarets, which each are more than 40 meters high, display the architect's penchant for symmetry.

The Taj Mahal is one of the most visited places in India, and therefore there are many hotels nearby at all levels to suite any ones budget. Although it is possible to visit Taj Mahal on a day trip from Delhi, most people prefer to stay at least for one night in Agra, one of the reasons being that the Taj Mahal changes color during the day, it appears pink in the morning, white during the noon and golden in the moon light, so many visitors want to see and take pictures of Taj Mahal at different times of the day. Hotel bookings in Agra can at times be difficult because all is already fully booked, so planning in and booking in advance is advisable.

Many visitors prefer to travel to Taj Mahal on a package tour, where guides will provide information about the story of the construction and explain all facts related to the site and its history. Usually vacation packages to Agra include a visit to Agra Fort, also called the Red Fort, built between 1565 and 1571. It is constructed mainly from sandstone, and later converted into a palace.
