in #history3 years ago

The Taj Mahal signifying "Crown of the Palace" is an ivory-white marble catacomb on the south bank of the Yamuna stream in the Indian city of Agra. It was dispatched in 1632 by the Mughal sovereign, Shah Jahan (ruled from 1628 to 1658), to house the tomb of his most loved spouse, Mumtaz Mahal. The tomb is the focal point of a 17-hectare (42-section of land) complex, which incorporates a mosque and a visitor house, and is set in formal greenery enclosures limited on three sides by a crenelated divider.
