Taj Mahal History Agra

History of Taj Mahal is as great as its magnificent structure. In fact, poet Rabindra Nath Tagore has described the mausoleum as a "tear on the face of eternity." Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan started the construction of Taj Mahal in the year 1631, in memory of his favourite wife Arjumand Banu Begum, popular as Mumtaz Mahal. Ustad Ahmad Lahauri was the principal designer of one of world's most marvellous building. Amanat Khan from Iran, was the chief calligrapher, while the main dome was designed by Ismail Afandi of Ottoman Empire. More than 20,000 labourers worked day and night for giving shape to the dream of Shah Jahan. After continuous work for 22 years, Taj Mahal was finally completed in the year 1653.

For constructing the mausoleum materials from all over India and other parts of Asia were used. Altogether, 28 types of precious and semi-precious stones were used to built the white marble monument. Above 1,000 elephants were used to transport construction materials. White marble (translucent) was brought from Rajasthan, while jasper was from Punjab. Jade and crystal were from China, the lapis lazuli came from Afghanistan, the turquoise was from Tiber, the sapphire from Sri Lanka and the carnelian brought from Saudi Arabia.
