The Taj Mahal
The Taj Mahal, of course, symbolizes not only Agra but the entire country, and for many holidaymakers it is the chief reason for coming to India. On Same Day Taj Mahal Tour, you will be beholding Taj Mahal in its entirety. Taj Mahal means the greatest ornament of the palaces. Like Venice and the pyramids of Egypt, the Taj Mahal more than lives up to expectations, and effortlessly avoids becoming a clich? of it-self. Even the most cynical will be over-whelmed.
The Same Day Taj Mahal Tour will apprise you of the historical events related to Taj Mahal. This incomparable mausoleum, the Taj Mahal, was built by Shah Jahan for his favorite wife, Arjumand Banu Begam. Arjumand Banu Begam is popularly known as Mumtaj Mahal. When Shah Jahan ascended the throne in 1628, Arjumand Banu Begam gets known as Mumtaz Mahal.
Although without doubt the world's most famous physical demonstration of love, the Taj Mahal was not an expression of grief by a king for the loss of a young and beautiful wife, as most believe. Mumtaz (1592-1631), died in her fortieth year, while in labour for the fourteenth time, and is unlikely to have been that most would now consider a conversional beauty. Nevertheless, although Shah Jahan had much younger wives, Mumtaj Mahal remained his firm favorite and he was devastated with grief at her sudden passing. Not a great deal is known about Mumtaz but she appears to have been an ardent Muslims. She personally campaigned against Christian missionaries in India.
Work on the walled complex began shortly after the death of Mumtaz, suggesting that Shah Jahan already had a plan for such a tomb in mind. Within 6 months, the body of Mumtaz had been brought from Burhanpur, where she had died during one of Shah Jahan's campaigns in the Deccan, to a temporary grave in the garden of the Taj Mahal, and it remained there until the mausoleum was ready.
