Discover The Taj Mahal India

The Taj Mahal is located in the city of Agra, in Uttar Pradesh. Also known as the 'Crown Palace', it was built in the 17th century by the Mogul emperor Shah Jahan, and was originally a mausoleum dedicated to his wife. All white marble and pink sandstone, it is more than 50m high and is surrounded by a beautiful garden, with fountains scattered on both sides of the monument. This superb building is one of the jewels of India, and the country does its utmost to preserve it. As a result, cars are prohibited from the site for fear of pollution.
