Another fact about India is that the Taj Mahal is actually a tomb. Commissioned in 1632 by Emperor Shah Jahan to built the Taj Mahal in honor of his late wife, Mumtaz Mahal,. Taj Mahal is among the Seven Wonders of the World, and is a stunning symbol of love and architectural brillance.
About 28 different types of precioud stones were used for adorning this place and they were sources from Tibet, China, Sri Lanka and some parts of India. One of the most significant Mughal Empire structural wonders, it still stands in all its beauty and fineness in Uttar Pradesh, India.
An interesting fact of the Taj Mahal is that it changes colours throughout the day. During sunrise, it appears to be pale pink; in the afternoon, it is sparkling white; and in the evenings, it turns a bronzish-orange as the sun sets. In late evenings, the Taj appears to be light-bluish in colour.
