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.
