The Taj Mahal, which translates to “Crown Palace,” is one of India’s most renowned and magnificent structures. The Taj Mahal, which is situated in the city of Agra, was really constructed as a mausoleum to hold Mumtaz Mahal’s remains, the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan’s wife. The structure, which was finished in the middle of the 17th century, is renowned for its liberal use of white marble.
