Did you know that the Taj Mahal was planned for not 6 months and took 22 years to build? Sounds like a long time but if you consider the every little details of what the Taj have then 22 years will make sense. The majestic marbled Taj Mahal is UNESCO World Heritage Site and listed as one of the 7 Wonders of the World. My host for this tour is DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Gurgaon – New Delhi NCR.
Kind Shah Jahan the 5th Mughal Emperor of India loved his 3rd wife Mumtaz Mahal so much that he had the Taj Mahal built in her memory in 1632. He was said to be distraught when she died during the birth of their 14th child.
