A Visit to Historical Place-Taj Mahal


I had often heard the praise of the Taj Mahal from my friends, so I had keen desire to see it, the most graceful and matchless tomb of Mumtaz Mahal at Agra last year, on the twenty first October. I went to Agra with the marriage party of my brother. It was the first time for me to visit Agra. How could I resist the temptations of the Taj Mahal of whose beauty and charm I had been hearing so much since my childhood ?

I saw the Taj Mahal on the night of Sharad Poornima. On the night of Sharad Poornima, its beauty is at height the Taj looks very beautiful in the moonlight.

The Taj Mahal was built by the Mughal Emperor Shahjahan. He built it in the memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. It is wonderful and world famous monument. It is said that it took twenty two years to be built, and that twenty thousand workers were employed to build it.

I, with some friends reached the Taj in the evening just after, we went into the beautiful garden with its pleasant walks, tall, dark Cyprus trees and smooth, green lawns. There stood up before the wonder of the world. It is made of white marble, a splendid white dome in the centre with minarettes round it, one at each corner of the platform on which the great mausleum stands.

From a distance, the Taj Mahal looks small and delicate, like a fairy place but as we get nearer we see how great large and solid it really is when we went up the marble steps and stood close to it, the dome seemed to soon high up to the blue sky. I stood at the bank of the river Jarnuna, the water of which was all silvery white in the moonlight and it made the building look brighter than ever. The Taj was reflected in the water of the river. It was a very beautiful scene.

We went inside, and saw the marble tomb. It was all decorated with precious and beautifully carved stones. There we thought of the queen whose body lied burried in this grave and the great love of the king who had constructed such lovely memorial to make her immortal. The real tomb of the queen Mumtaz Mahal lies in a small room lower down which one can reach by descending some step. This hall is charming for it is made of white and black marble. Everything in this hall i.e. walls and tombs are covered with scriptures from the Quran. There are also floral designs made with beautiful precious stones of different colours.

Soon it was full moon. We enjoyed the wonderful sight of the Taj in the light of the full moon. It looked like a building of pearls or a place made of silver. So bright and tender it was, that it seemed to be made of white clouds. The gleaming white marble, the black shadow, the soft moonlight, the perfect silence despite the fact that there were thousands of visitors and the sweet scented garden, all made it a sight never to be forgotten. Standing before it one seemed to be in a dream world.

The Taj Mahal is described vividly by poets. It has been as a poem in Marble or ‘Dream in Marble’ Rabtndra Nath Tagore wrote many excellent poems on the Taj Mahal. No photograph, no picture, no portrait can describe its full splendour and brilliance. One must see it to appreciate it fully. One who visits the Taj by moonlight can no longer doubt that the Taj Mahal is the most beautiful and splendid building on the earth. It is indeed one of the seven wonders of the world.
