Taj Mahal

Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983, the Taj Mahal remains one of the most fascinating destinations on Earth.  The cathedral-like structure is actually a mausoleum in the town of Agra, India.  The Mughal Emporer Shah Jahan commissioned the “Taj” built for his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal, in 1632.  A team from as many as twenty individual polities finished the extravagant complex of structures, gardens, and elaborate interior décor after a rigorous twenty-two years of construction.  The monument continues to marvel visitors from around the globe today!
