Taj Mahal-UNESCO World Heritage Site-Closed on Friday

Famous as one of the wonders of the world, the Taj Mahal at Agra, India, is an epitome of true love and passion. This ivory-white marble mausoleum on the south bank of the Yamuna river was built by the famous Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved wife, Mumtaj Mahal. The beauty of the Taj Mahal has been aptly summarized by the famous English poet, Sir Edwin Arnold, as "Not a piece of architecture, as other buildings are, but the proud passions of an emperor's love wrought in living stones."

The Taj Mahal is considered the finest example of Mughal architecture, a style that combines elements from Persian, Indian, and Islamic architectural styles. In 1983, the Taj Mahal became a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was cited as "the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world's heritage."

The moods of the Taj vary from dawn to dusk. It looks milky white in the soft light that characterizes early morning, while the afternoon sun makes it glisten bright and dazzling in the overhead sunlight, almost looking like a jewel against the opaque blue of the skyline and then comes a moonlit Taj breaking into the night sky, majestic and simply beautiful in a sense that cannot be put into words. The sensuous appeal can never be more heightened as on a full moon night when it shines like a pearl-making the visitor stand agape at the spectacle. The romanticism and sheer majesty of the structure are unbelievably true! No wonder if millions of people chose it amongst the World’s top wonders.

Red Fort- UNESCO World Heritage Site-Closed on Friday

The Agra Fort, also known as the “Lal –Qila”, “Fort Rouge” or “Qila-i-Akbari”, is the highlight of the city of Agra. A symbol of power, strength, and resilience, as it stands today in full glory. Knowing the significance of its location, Akbar built the fort to make it the main residence of the Mughals when the Mughal capital was in Agra. It took more than 4000 workers and eight years of hardship to complete the fort. It is about 2.5 km northwest of its more famous sister monument, the Taj Mahal. The fort can be more accurately described as a walled city.
Bricks formed the base of Agra Fort’s structure. Red sandstone was brought all the way from Rajasthan and that was laid on the external surfaces. Back then, the entire fort was built using the red sandstone. This appearance of the fort underwent a major change during the reign of Shah Jahan. Unlike his grandfather, Shah Jahan was smitten by the beauty of white marble. Hence, he destroyed many structures within the fort, only to rebuild them using white marble.

Built by the Mughal Empress Nur Jahan for her parents, Itimad-ud-Daula and Asmat Begum, between 1622 and 1628, this small mausoleum is the first example of a Mughal tomb faced in white marble that employed such a wide use of stone inlay to decorate its exterior It doesn’t have the same awesome beauty as the Taj, but it’s arguably more delicate in appearance thanks to its particularly finely carved jalis(marble lattice screens).
