Taj Mahal
Taj Mahal AgraPopularity of Agra is mainly augmented by the taj mahal , the fine architectural work of human being. The Taj provides a testimony to the platonic love of Shah Jahan for his wife Arjumand Banu, who later came to be known as Mumtaz. After twenty-two laborious years, and the combined effort of over twenty thousand workmen and master craftsmen, the complex was finally completed in 1648 on the banks of the river Yamuna in Agra , once the capital of Mughal monarchs.
