Wonders of the World


Taj Mahal, Agra, India

One of the world's most beautiful buildings and India's most famous monument, this white marble mausoleum has become symbolic of enduring love. It was built in the 1630s by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan for his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. An exquisite example of Islamic architecture, it took about 22 years to complete with a workforce of around 20,000 people. With its breathtaking fine detail and gleaming façade, we can see why the Taj Mahal earned its UNESCO status in 1983 and is often considered one of the new seven wonders of the world.
