The taj mahal photo is a mausoleum located in Agra, India. It was commissioned by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who died during childbirth in 1631. The Taj is widely considered one of the most beautiful buildings in the world and is a symbol of India’s rich history.
The building is constructed primarily of white marble, and is adorned with intricate carvings and inlaid designs made of precious stones such as jade, crystal, lapis lazuli, and turquoise. The central dome, which is approximately 60 feet in diameter and 80 feet high, is the most striking feature of the Taj’s architecture. It is surrounded by four smaller domes and four slender towers, or minarets, which rise to a height of about 130 feet.
