The Taj Mahal is everything that has been said about it and more.
Taking 22 years and 20,000 men to build, the white marble was quarried 200 miles away and was transported to the site by a fleet of 1000 elephants. Built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as an expression of his love for his wife Mumtaz Mahal, in the mid-17th century. The Taj Mahal is truly one of the wonders of the world.
Though the Taj appears to be amazingly perfect from almost any angle, it is the close-up marble inlay work, which is astounding.
