Taj Mahal– Poets have tried to illustrate its beauty in words. Painters have drawn vibrant pictures of it and musicians have played to large crowds with the Taj Mahal in the background. Termed as one of the World’s new seven wonders, the Taj is a complete show-stealer. Standing tall and proud in the city of Agra, it was built in the memory of the beautiful Anjuman Bano Begum. It is a massive mausoleum of white marble, built between 1631 and 1648 on order of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. (Taj Mahal is closed Fridays).
