Twenty two long years and enormous amounts of money that went into its construction could not deter this lover from hiring the best of talents and almost 20,000 laborers and ensuring that it becomes the most beautiful building the world has ever seen.
Mumtaz Mehal, his beloved queen, had left for another world but Shah Jehan carved an eternal place in history for both of them by building this mausoleum at the banks of River Yamuna. It is almost divine to see the changing colors of Taj Mahal in the full moon and no-moon nights as it casts its pearly reflection in the waters of the river.
Just imagine the turbulence and the desperate longing of a lover's heart who so moved even his hard-hearted son, Aurangzeb, that when he captured and imprisoned Shah Jehan in Red Fort and mounted the throne, he made a little allowance for his father. He allowed him to pass his last days in the area from where he could see the Taj Mahal even while lying on his bed.
As you are guided through the majestic Red Fort, you will see the place and can still feel the air of desolation and loneliness that haunts the area. Sikandra, Akbar's mausoleum, and Itmad-ud-daulah are other notable places that display the expertise of Mughal architectural style when it was at its zenith.
