The most famous monument of Agra (and arguably of the country) is The Taj Mahal. Built by the 5th Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan for his wife – Mumtaz Mahal, Taj Mahal was included in the 7 wonders of the world.
The construction was started in 1632 and was completed in 1653. Thousands of artisans and craftsmen were roped in to build the mausoleum. The stones and jewels were transported from far off lands to provide that perfect look to the monument. No wonder the monument is recognized as the Jewel of Muslim Art in India.
Taj Mahal attracts around 2 million visitors annually.
