A wonder from other side : The Taj Mahal


The ultimate love symbol, where Life is only Love. The mega structure, built around 16th century, took 22 years to complete and thousands of elephants carrying all the marble, topaz, precious, semi-precious stones from all over India, Asia to the Agra. Approximate 22 thousand employees recruited on special contract of 'No future participation in similar monuments'. 

Of all the controversies being it a Hindu Lord Shiva temple, 'Tejo Mahalaya' (roughly called then as 'Taj Mahal') by Dr Oak; Taj Mahal still stands as Muslim tomb. But whatever myths n trolls are, the beauty remains the same in spite of all the things.

The Taj Mahal constructed in Persian Architecture and earlier Mughal architecture.The structure is made of mainly white marble from Rajasthan, India. Basically there are 2 amazing things about TajMahal.
First is the entire structure has a wooden base. The wood, which is of a special kind, becomes stronger as it comes in contact with water.Since Taj Mahal was built beside Yamuna River this was absolutely required.
Second, there is a small unspotted hole on the top, from which water droplets will fall on the tombs inside the Taj Mahal during rainy season.Truly it deserves to be one among the wonders of the world.
