A Visit to a Historical Building


A Visit to a Historical Place


The Taj Mahal

                The Taj Mahal is the most magnificent building in India.  It is called ‘one of the seven wonders of the world.”  It was built by the Moghul Emperor Shah Jahan in the sweet memory of his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal.  Twenty thousand workmen including some European masons worked day and night for twenty years to build it.  It cost the Emperor several crores of rupees.

                I had a keen desire to visit this famous building of the world.  At last the day came when my long-cherished desire turned into reality.  Last year I had an occasion to attend the marriage of a friend of mine.  This gave me a chance to see this master-piece of artistic design.  As I came close to it, I was struck by its unique structure.  It is a marvel in marble.  We went to the underground room where Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal lie buried.  Our minds went back to the times of Shah Jahan when he built this building at a high cost.

                The Taj is surrounded by a cypress garden on three sides. It is situated on the bank of the river Jamuna which lends charm to its beauty.  The surroundings and the garden and lustre to its architecture. The beauty of the Taj beggars description.

                In the moonlit night, its glory and splender become unique.  It is an intoxication and a delight to watch this marvelous feat of workmanship in a full moonlight night. I have seen several buildings but none presents such a glorious view.  It is matchless in beauty.

                Some historians have named it “the crown of the world.”  Someone has rightly called it a ‘poem in marble.’  In short, it is a paradise on earth.  It is a thing of beauty and a joy forever.  The crimson rays of the sun at the time of sunset, enhance its beauty and glory.

                My joy knew no bounds on seeing this wonderful building.  Its memory will always remain fresh in my mind. My knowledge about the Taj is now first hand.  It is quite different form the second hand information which I had got from my books.

                I also visited some other historical buildings in Agra Fort.  It is a huge buildings that reminds the visitors of the lofty grandeur and the glory of the great Moghul Kings.  I then went to Fatehpur Sikri where I saw the famous Buland Darwaza, the Panch Mahal and many other buildings. All these magnificent structures made a deep impression on me but there is nothing to match the beauty of the Taj.

                I was reminded of the English lady who, on seeing the Taj, had said to her husband,” If you promise to build a monument like the Taj in my memory, I am ready to die right now.”
