Taj Mahal Tours and Top 10 Things to See and Do in Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal, located in Agra, is an architectural marvel. It is one of the most famous places to visit in India and when you arrive on private Taj Mahal Tours, you understand completely why it is one of the Seven Wonders of the world.

It is not only the allure of its splendour that will have you mesmerize on the many sightseeing Taj Mahal Tours offers, but it is also the romantic story behind its creation. This white marble, symmetrical, monument is majestic to look at, especially from the main gateway as you arrive on Private Taj Mahal Tours. There is a beautiful view of the mosque with guest house on the sides and the four minarets at each corner.

The interior is just as impressive to discover on Taj Mahal private cultural tours. It is very grand, symmetrical and a joy to experience including the tombs. Finally, if the monument was not enough, there are the symmetrically laid out gardens to wander on Taj Mahal tours.

When deciding to visit here, you should really plan to do it with private Sunrise Taj Mahal Tours. It is the most spectacular time of the day to see this wonder in all its glory and romantic too!

The Romantic tale behind the construction of the Taj Mahal begins in 1607 with a 14-year-old Shah Jahan who was the son of the fourth Mughal emperor in India, catching a glimpse of 15-year-old Muslim Persian Princess, Arjumand Banu Begum and falling in love at first sight with her. In 1612 their match was solemnised.

In 1628 after becoming Emperor, Shah Jahan entrusted Arjumand Banu with the royal seal and gave her the title Mumtaz Mahal which means “Jewel of the Palace”. While Shah Jahan had other wives, Mumtaz Mahal was his favourite and she went everywhere with him including on military campaigns.

Due to complications when giving birth to their 14th child, Mumtaz Mahal died. It was on her deathbed that Shah Jahan made the promise never to remarry and to build the finest mausoleum above her grave. After 22 years and 22,000 workers, the worlds most beautiful mausoleum was finished and holds the side by side tombs of Shah Jahan, who died in 1666, and Mumtaz Mahal
