Constructed over a 20-year period, between 1632-1653, on the southern bank of the Yamuna River in Agra, “Taj Mahal”, the famed complex is one of the most outstanding examples of Mughal architecture, which combined Indian, Persian and Islamic influences. Commissioned by the fifth Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan, “Taj Mahal”, is not a piece of architecture, as other buildings are, but the proud passions of an emperor’s love wrought in living stones. This enormous monument was dedicated to emperor’s beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Having its associations to devotion and ardour, the Taj was also a source of unimaginable beauty. The complex’s ordered symmetry symbolizes absolute power—the perfection of Mughal leadership and its grand scale and extravagance only brought glory to Shah Jahan’s reign.
