The Taj Mahal (Agra India)

Southern entry gate

The Taj Mahal was built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan for his third wife.

Construction started in 1632 and took about 22 years to complete.

The latest in mausoleum foot wear. Get yours quick before they run out!

Looking back to the southern entrance

He built the Taj because he was grief stricken when his wife died giving birth to their 14th child. 
Ya think so buddy!!!! 
Poor wife.

There are many rumours surrounding the Taj. One being that he was building a identical black one across the river. Nothing has ever been found to support this though.

Could not resist this photo op
