Taj Mahal is a symbol of love that was built in the 17th century. It is one among the seven other wonders of the world. It is located in the Agra city on the bank of Yamuna River. It is a momentum of love in which expressions are expressed in the form of structure. In 1631, the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan built this momentum for his loving wife Mumtaz Mahal.
This momentum was older than 350 years. It always gives the fragrance of love. In the architecture of Mughals, it is similar to a gem in the crown. The best companion of Shah Jahan was her loving wife Mumtaz Mahal. During the war, she always gave company to him. She was dead in Burhanpur when she was giving birth to their 14th child.
