By hydraulic lift the replica is lifted slowly on a lotus shaped platform. It depicts various aspects of Taj Mahal. Taj Mahal is the symbol of eternity of love and a rich example of Indian history & Mughal architecture. It is a monument which was made by Shah Jahan in the memory of his loving queen Mumtaj. It reminds about the true love of Shah Jahan and Mumtaj. Taj Mahal is situated in Agra at the south bank of river Yamuna. It was listed under UNESCO world heritage site in 1983 and has been winner of the New Seven Wonders of the World (2002-2007).

Construction of Taj Mahal was done during 1632 AD-1643 AD and surrounding decoration was done after five years. The architecture of the Taj Mahal is a blend of Mughal and Persian architecture styles. Its architecture takes inspiration from some prior monuments such as Humayun’s Tomb and It Mad-ud-Daulah’s Tomb. Unlike the other emperors before him, Shah Jahan promoted white marble instead of red sandstone. In the main chamber there are resembling graves of Shah Jahan and Mumtaj Mahal while the real graves are under the level. There is a large dome in the center of the complex. The height of the tomb is nearly 35 meters and because of its shape it is also known as onion dome. The top of the dome has a carved lotus design. The overall structure of the complex is a square. The structure of Taj is completely symmetrical and has four minarets; one at its each corner. The minarets have a height of about 40 meters. The exterior decorations were done using paint and carvings. Calligraphy of Persian poem and Arabic Ayaat is done on exterior structure. The inner chamber of the Taj Mahal, shaped in an octagon, has entry from all the faces, but the door facing towards south is used. The inner walls have height of 25 meters. In the chamber, the resembling grave of Mumtaj is in the exact central location. The resembling grave of Shah Jahan makes an asymmetry in the Taj Mahal. It is adjacent to Mumtaj’s grave. Carved flowers on marble, incised painting, marble jail lattice, plant motifs and reflective tiles were used in the decoration of the Taj. The garden is designed in Charbagh style of Mughal architecture. It is a design inspired by Persian gardens. The Charbagh style gardens were introduced in India by Babur. In the center of the garden, there is a reflecting pool in north- south axis. It shows reflected image of Taj. There are many trees and fountains in the garden.
