The Taj

Hailed as an epitome of beauty and love, Taj Mahal has been mesmerising millions of visitors from around the globe and for sure will continue to mesmerise them for centuries to come.

we have compiled a list of the 10 most interesting facts about Taj Mahal.

  • According to legend it is believed that Emperor Shah Jahan had planned to construct another Taj Mahal in black marble on the other side of the river but the war with his sons interrupted his plans.
  • The Taj Mahal takes on different colouring at different times of the day, from a pinkish hue in the morning, milky white in the evening and golden at night when lit by the moon. They say the changing colour resembles the changing mood of females – in particular the Emperor’s queen.
