About the Taj Mahal
Construction of the Taj Mahal in Agra began in 1632 and was fully completed 21 years later in 1653. The building was famously constructed by Emperor Shah Jahan to house the tomb of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal.
Indian authorities estimate that 7 to 8 million people a year visit the Taj Mahal, making it India’s number 1 tourist attraction. The majority of visitors are Indian. The tomb at the centre of the Taj Mahal is surrounded by a large ornamental garden bordered on thee sides by sandstone walls. The Taj Mahal is built using materials from all other India and also from other countries in Asia. The crystal used in the construction came from China, the carnelian from Arabia, the lapis lazuli from Afghanistan, turquoise from Tibet and the sapphire from Sri Lanka, making the Taj Mahal a pan-Asian construction project.
