Mumtaz Mahal – The Inspiration Behind Taj Mahal

It is always said that true love never die and it does not know any boundaries, sounds impossible, i think yes. But this view changes when we see Taj Mahal, standing on the serene banks of river Yamuna. Taj is the best example of the true and undying love of a King for his Queen. Shah Jahan (the King) built this white marble mausoleum in the memory of his deceased wife Mumtaz Mahal, so that people can remember their love for a long time.

The love story of Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal was just like a fairytale, where the young prince saw his princess for the first time and fell in love with her. After some problems, finally they meet and this time not to be separated from each other. But as every fairytale story goes, their happy life was short and ends on a sad note(the death of Mumtaz Mahal during child birth). It was Mumtaz Mahal who became the inspiration for India's most beautiful and most visited travel attraction. A visit to Taj is a must at least once in your lifetime.

On a personal note, i have never seen anything as beautiful and wonderful as Taj Mahal. Simply awesome.

The Taj Mahal is one of the most wonderful tourism destinations in India and is aptly considered one of the greatest wonders of the world. People all over the world desire to see the grandeur of the Taj Mahal and only a lucky few get to see this wonder in marble. The Taj Mahal signifies and glorifies human love, has withstood the test of time, and still stands in all its glory. Emperor Shahjahan has firmly put Agra on the travel and tourism map of the world.
