A Visit to Taj Mahal

A visit to Agra cannot be called complete unless one sees the Taj- the Crown of the World. This peerless tomb was built by Shahjahan after the loss of his wife, Mumtaj Mahal , as a token of his great love for her. It is said that it took twenty –two years to build, and that twenty thousand  men together were employed at one time on the work. 

The Taj Mahal is surrounded by a beautiful garden. In it tall dark cypress trees grow along the straight walks and fountains play in some places.  It has many smooth green lawns and many beds of glowing flowers. All these add to the beauty of the Taj.

The Taj itself stands on the bank of the river Jamuna. It is made of white marble. It has four tall slender white marble minarets, one in each corner of the platform around it, on which the great tomb stands. Look at it from a distance. How small and delicate. Like a fairy palace, it looks! Come nearer, and we find, how large and stately it really is. If we go up the marble steps , and stand close to it, the dome seems to soar high up into the blue sky.

The Taj is built on  a high terrace made of marble. We climbed a few steps and saw the big terrace in  the centre of which stands the Taj. There are four high towers at the four corners. Now I saw the beauty of the Taj. I never thought of so. There are verses from Quran written in black mosaic at the three sides of the gate. It is really a great work of art. I was puzzled to see its greatness and glory.

Now we went in. there is a board circular gallery all round the building. I was astonished to see the filigree work and carvings in the marble. In the center, there were two tombs of Shahjahan and his dear queen, Mumtaz Mahal. But I came to know that they were not the real tombs. The real tombs we downstairs. We went there and found that they were exactly like the other tombs above. Verses of Quran were written on the tomb of the queen. The slab over emperor was bare. I wondered to see the mosaic work of art on all sides.

It is the result of thousands of laboureres worked for twenty years to build this grand monument of the love of Shahjahan for his queen. Crores of rupees were spent.

It is really a great work of art and India is proud of it. People come down from all countries to see this wonder of wonder. Every part of the building is very attractive in a moon lit night. The Jamuna flowing by adds to its charms.

The sight of the building has made a deep impression. It is delightful to see the Taj at any time of the day. But it is most wonderful to see it in the light of the full moon. At that time it looks like a building of pearl, or a palace made of silver. It looks bright and delicate that it seems to have been made of white clouds. The gleaming white marble, the black shadows , the dim light , the silence, and the sweet scented gardens, all make it a wonderful sight to see. To save Taj Mahal from pollution  buses driven by batteries are used from Agra Fort Railway Station to Taj Mahal.

Lakhs of people from India and abroad visit the Taj every year. They don’t tire while commending its beauty. It is majestic in its beauty; such a beauty can be conceived only in a dream. However, the Taj is a reality, but a dreamy reality, so captivating is its beauty.  

The Taj Mahal was caused to be built by Mughal Emperor Shahjehan in the memory of his beloved queen Mumtaj Mahal. The Taj has become symbolic of intense love these days.

I along with my several school mates visited the Taj Mahal on the full moon day in October this year. The beauty of the Taj is at its peak under the silvery moonlight spreading all over the place and glamorizing the Taj. Its surroundings are well decorated with greenery and flower beds. We felt overjoyed to see the Taj. Hundreds of men, women and children had collected there to enjoy the beauty of the Taj. There were large groups of foreigners clicking their comers. We also posed for photographs.

The Taj is a wonderful dream come true in marble. Its architectural design in superb. It has four mineats on four corners with a onion shaped dome in the centre. Couplets from Koran are engraved beautifully on its walls which is again a wonder of calligraphy. Flowery designs are inset with precious coloured stones. Above all it is made up of spotless white marble. We went down the staircase and visited the graves of the emperor and the empress who lie side by side in their graves over there. Nobody is allowed to  go there with shoes on; however, canvas shoes were provided to us by the men on duty outside.   

The vision cast a magic spell on me and my friends after seeing it under the full moon that day. We felt that it was a sight fit to be seen by the gods so much inviting the Taj appeared to us that time. The green tufts of grass, and the green shoots of the Cyprus trees adorned its majestic beauty appeared to add to its majestic beauty many times more.  

I took objection to a friend’s remarks when he asked what beauty it has but its marble- made heavy structure. He also stated that many Hindu temples in Rajasthan and South India were far more beautiful than The Taj Mahal. I agreed with him that the Rajputana temples were quite beautiful and also the  Taj was concerned it has its own unique design and its execution to which he also nodded. Of course, the Taj is supremely beautiful. We felt rewarded after seeing it.

Before we reach the main building of the Taj, we walk on a path which has tall attractive cypress trees on either side. Behind the cypress trees there are vast luxurious grassy lawns.

There is a large central dome over the main building, having four spiraling minarets on each of the four sides of the building. The graves of Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal lie in a dark chamber beneath the central dome.
