Taj Mahal Tour: Explore the Charm of India


Have you ever been to Taj Mahal? If your answer is no, you must opt for Taj Mahal tour and know its history. The Taj Mahal is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, which was constructed by the great Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in the memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. It took 20,000 men to build in twenty two years. The Taj Mahal garden is placed out in formal style. Taj Mahal is one of the most fabulous tourist attractions, which can be visited with the help of Taj Mahal tour in splendid manner.

In addition, the water courses with fountains and the elevated lotus pool are so arranged as to mirror the beauty and the lovely dignity of the Taj from various points of view. “it is from such position that the character of feminity with which this monument is accredited becomes apparent, a quality presumed to be international as a tribute to the royal personage it enshrine. This impression has been evoked by several particulars among which are the plastic delicacy and soft molding of its contours, the superfine treatment of its decoration, and the chaste texture and subtle coloring of its material, which combined with the gracious and poetical nature of the building as whole, all tend to imply humanity which can only be feminine.” All this things can be visited with Taj Mahal tour.

The tombs are enclosed by a white marble screen so beautifully and delicately fretted as to suggest the finest lace. This exquisite screen has a flower border in colored mosaic and was substituted for the original gold by Aurangzeb. Both the graves are of white marble and are elaborately inlaid with semi-precious stones. These, however, are not the true tombs; the graves are under the central chamber placed exactly below those in the hall above. A passage leads down to this vault and over the two tombs hangs a fine carious lamp. It was a custom in those days to build two tombs, a real one and its replica just over it, so that no one might walk over the real grave. So, don’t miss the great chance to see this magnificent monument by choosing Taj Mahal tour to make your dream come true.

For every hour of the day and for every atmospheric condition Taj Mahal has its own color values, from the soft dreaminess at dawn, and the dazzling whiteness at midday to its cold splendor in the moonlight, when the dome, thin of substance as the air, hangs, among the stars like a great pearl. Yet one of these effects can equal those few fleeting monuments when, softly illuminated by the brief India after glow, it assumes the enchanting tint of some pale and lively rose.
