Why is the Taj Mahal considered a 'Wonder of the World'?
The Taj Mahal is a unique, massive, impressive architectural accomplishment of it's time, 55 meters high. The Statue of Liberty could fit inside it easily (46m).
It is considered by many who have seen it to be the most beautiful building ever built. The date of its completion plus the reason for its existence, add to the wondrous nature of the structure.
The building of the Taj Mahal was ordered by Moghul ruler Shah Jahan to commemorate the memory of his late favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. The project required the labor of over 22,000 workers and 1000 elephant's, including many fine artists and architects. It was begun in 1632, and completion of the entire complex took about 22 years.

In 1983, the Taj Mahal was declared a World Heritage site. The greatness and uniqueness of this site are the source of the monument's importance, and so the reason it was …designated a World Heritage site. The UNESCO organization says the Taj Mahal is "considered to be the greatest architectural achievement in the whole range of Indo-Islamic architecture", not only in appearance but in its construction and conception. Furthermore the Taj Mahal has maintained "integrity", in that it remains as authentic a piece of architecture as it was when first selected to be a World Heritage site.
It become a UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) World Heritage Site in the year 1983.
It is an ornate white marble building located in the city of Agra in India. It was constructed by a Mogul emperor as a tomb for his favorite wife (completed 1648). (see rela…ted question)
The Taj Mahal is in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India. Taj Mahal is a pre-Islamic fort. The construction and architecture reveals that. What is now Taj Mahal was a part of a huge… building. Mongols when they overrun India were uncivilized nomadic barbarians never seen any buildings but used to live in tents ( they still do, go to Uzbeckistan and see). They could never built Taj Mahal. Taj Mahal was a temple of Shiva. Mongol emperor Shahjehan took it back from Jagat Singh and reconstructed as a Mosque, but with a wrong direction (facing East rather than West). Shah Jehan had no wife named Mumtaj Mahal or Taj Mahal. The name of the quuen who was buried next to him was named Arjumand Zamani. Agra India

Because of it's architecture. It was a marvel in terms of opulance. During the course of time, the acual stones in it were replaced with mirrors.
The taj mahal is wonderful because it was built over 300 years ago and it has made developments in building and architecture.

Taj mahal is mausoleum built by Shah Jahan in the memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal. Construction of Taj mahal took 22 years. More than 1000 elephants where used to carry the ma…terials. More than 10000 wokers were involved in the construction process. Nearly by 1648AD construction was completed. After the death of Mumtaz, Tajmahal was build around here grave yard. Tajmahal have many precious stones in it is architectural design. What is written above is a Muslim-British propaganda, there is no truth in it. Taj Mahal is the temple of Shiva, Tajendra is one of the name of Shiva. It was a Shiva temple inside the palace of Jagat Singh, grandson of Man Singh, the commander in chief of Akber. It was not a Muslim building at all because (a) it is facing east like any Hindu building; (b) it is octagonal as recommended by Hindu architectures, (c) it has motifs of Lotus important for Hindus but prohibited in Muslim architectures. Arab beduins, Turks and Mongols, the Muslims who invaded India were barbarians, nomadic, uncivilised people. They never had any buildings in their own countries which are still mainly deserts. They could not design a building like Taj Mahal.
