    The soft sunshine in the early morning is shining from the east side to the Taj Mahal, showing a warm golden orange, pink beauty is looking at you in all kinds of ways, at this moment everyone will be moved. This is also the best time to take the golden-red reflection of the Taj Mahal in the pond. On the small platform, the hand was too soft and addicted, and began to move forward. In the middle, there is a white marble bench on the small platform of the pool, which is called "Diana Chair " by Indians. It is said that when Diana, the British princess, visited the Taj Mahal, she sat on this stone bench and heard the beautiful and desolate love story of Shah Jahan and his wife, Akiman Baru. She could not help but be moved by it and burst into tears. It's amazing that the same princess has a completely different version of the ending. Further up is the main hall of the Tailing Mausoleum, with the coffins of Persian beauties in the open world. Yesterday, I visited the Red Castle of Agra and listened to the moving story of Shah Jahan and the princess. It was this wise, virtuous and versatile Persian woman who had been fighting with Shah Jahan for more than ten years, witnessed her husband's honor and disgrace with her life, and finally died in the barracks in 1631. The king was so grieved that he grey-haired overnight. In order to commemorate and miss his wife, he decided to make every effort to build the Taj Mahal with countless money. In 1633, the construction of the Tailing Mausoleum began in the garden at the bend of the lower Yamuna River. Shah Jahan used marble to build the Tailing Mausoleum to highlight the dignity, elegance and purity of the princess. Embedded with Chinese emeralds, crystals and jades, Sri Lankan gems, agate from Baghdad and Yemen, and Arab coral, the princess is a shining pearl on the crown. It's forbidden to take photos when entering the coffin room. But it's not easy to come all the way. Please forgive me for breaking the rules once, Amen. After 17 years, the Taj Mahal was built in 1650. It shows the superb level of architectural design at that time. It is elegant and elegant with beautiful flower patterns embedded in white marble and beautiful calligraphy. It is said that Shah Jahan mobilized more than 20,000 craftsmen to build such a magnificent mausoleum for his wife and left artistic treasures for mankind. Over the past 400 years, the charm of the Taj Mahal is still shining, and there are countless Tai fans falling at her feet. The Taj Mahal was built downstream of the Yamuna River to allow Shah Jahan in the Red Castle upstream to look affectionately at his wife's mausoleum every day. The whole building of Tailing Mausoleum is composed of palace, bell tower, Xuanli Tower, mosque, garden, pool and so on. The building materials are all pure white marble, then glass, gem, agate inlay. The main color is red and white, which is so harmonious and beautiful. It has very high artistic appreciation value. Tailing is one of the most perfect buildings of Indian Muslims. It has reached the peak of perfection. It is one of the outstanding representative works in the world architectural heritage. It is praised as "perfect architecture", "Indian pearl".

    The Taj Mahal is located in Agra, India. It can be said that 99% of visitors to Agra come to the Taj Mahal. Entering the Taj Mahal is very difficult. First you have to take a short bus ride to the gate, and then you have to wait in a long line. Of course, the waiting is worthwhile. The building is really beautiful. White marble and absolute symmetry are unique in the world. When you enter the mausoleum, you will find that the white marble has begun to yellowish with the passage of time, and the interior of the mausoleum is empty. There is almost nothing to see. Of course, the biggest regret for visiting the Taj Mahal is that there are too many tourists. Although the Indian government has also made some measures to limit the current, there are still many people outside the mausoleum.

    The description of the Taj Mahal has always been aesthetic. Some people say that it is a tear on the eternal cheek. Others say that it is the embodiment of all the most pure things in the world. His creator calls the sun and the moon tears for it. Despite that sad story, the Taj Mahal is indeed a symbol of love. After the completion of the construction of the Taj Mahal, the king wanted to build a pure black Mausoleum of the same shape and quality on the other side of the river, which was connected by a black-and-white bridge and looked at each other. Unfortunately, the other side of the river is still barren. The king was eventually usurped and imprisoned by his own son in Agalburg. The only thing he wanted to do every day was to look at the Taj Mahal across the bank. Begonia is fragrant, shad is spiny, and the red building is not finished. There are always so many imperfections in the world! __________ Eventually the king died and was buried in the Taj Mahal. Life is the same, death is the same cave. It is also an imperfect perfection.

    The Taj Mahal is an eternal tear on the cheek of time. " Tagore, a great writer, uses such poems to describe the beautiful Taj Mahal. The treasure of this Indian building not only reproduces the beauty of Taj, Queen of the Mogul Empire, but also records the faithful love of King Sha and Jahan for his wife. The Taj Mahal is a mausoleum built by Shah Jahan, King of the Mogul Empire, for his dead Queen Montague. It took 22 years to complete the construction of the mausoleum, which began in 1631. Eventually, the Mogul Dynasty went to ruin because of this building, or because of a love affair. This magnificent and magnificent building is called "perfect building", one of the "eight wonders of the world". Look at the queue of tourists. I'm one of them.

    The Taj Mahal is one of the most well-known monuments in India. It is a world cultural heritage and has been selected as the "New Seven Wonders of the World". The Taj Mahal is a huge mausoleum mosque built in white marble. It was built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved concubine in Agra from 1631 to 1653. The Taj Mahal is also the driving force behind my trip to India. When the Taj Mahal is right in front of you, it is estimated that no one can help but utter heartfelt admiration. The most common words I have ever seen to describe her are "shock, perfect from any point of view". Let me use a different word to describe it - "beautiful wheels, beautiful white marble buildings, beautifully inlaid patterns, making the Taj Mahal look particularly holy. Tourists from India and all over the world are in an endless stream. The Taj Mahal's accessory buildings and small animals are accompanied by the Taj Mahal, which is also interesting. Security checks into the Taj Mahal are still very strict, with gun guards inside.

    Taj Mahal, one of the most famous monuments in India, is also one of the world's cultural heritage, "New Seven Wonders of the World". The mausoleum mosque, built from white marble, was built by the Mogul emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved concubine in Agra from 1631 to 1653. The Taj Mahal has two entrances, East and west. The admission ticket for foreigners is 1100 rupees, including a bottle of pure water, shoe covers and advanced access to the Taj Mahal. It is forbidden to bring any food, beverage (except water) into the tripod. There are very strict security measures. If any contraband is found to be prohibited from entering, it is necessary to go to a far storage room to store the contraband, and then queue up for security check again. This is also the place with the most tourists. Foreigners'tickets do not need to queue with local people, but can go directly to the entrance, giving priority to entry. Must visit the museum, here are the original design, and the architectural designer's color painting effect is very shocking.

    Taj Mahal is a mausoleum built by Shah Jahan, the Mogul emperor, for his wife Taj Mahal. Mahal has been married to Shah Jahan for more than 20 years. When she died in 1622 at the age of 38, the emperor was deeply grieved. Her last wish was to sleep in a beautiful mausoleum, so Shah Jahan personally designed, spent tens of thousands of workers, spent a lot of money, and spent 22 years to build the Taj Mahal. Shah Jahan wanted to build a black mausoleum on the other side of the river and a black-and-white bridge between the two, but his son took the throne by coup and imprisoned him in Agalburg. Shah Jahan spent the rest of his life in Agalburg, looking at the Taj Mahal day and night through a small window.
