It is a spectacular white marble mausoleum designed by the architect Ustad Isa. Taj Mahal was built by Mughal ruler Shah Jahan who built it in honor of his wife Mumtaz Mahal. Mumtaz Mahal died after giving birth to their fourteenth child. The complex is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites and was designated in 2007 AD as one of the Seven New Wonders of the World. The structure was built over a period of 22 years by 20,000 craftsmen. The historic building is located on the bank of the Yamuna River. The Taj Mahal is a symbol of love in today's age.
