Taj Mahal: Heaven On Earth
Never does she rest on the bold base in bare, for the delicate paintings drape her ever so rare. With every mortal awing at her beauty of solitude, she smiles in a shy of gratitude. Elegance and strength are spread in equal measures on this wonderful mausoleum and not even the disasters dared to make the touch of destruction. This craft of magnificence was built by the fifth Muslim Mogul emperor, Shah Jahan and baptized it, Taj Mahal, in honourable memory of his beloved late wife, Mumtaz.
Taj Mahal is situated at Agra in the state of Uttar Pradesh, India. There are several commuting facilities connecting to it irrespective of the means of transport. Visitors from all over the globe come down to India to place their eyes on something that can only be seen, smiled and wondered at. There are fresh green plantations grown on either side of the pathway for the visitors to walk their way into this dreamland. The river Yamuna flows in front of Taj Mahal emitting a reflection of its beauty. Lush green grass and trees make for a sensational ambience surrounding the more beautiful shrine. The color of purity, yellow, shields the beauty at the ingress of dusk. As one enters through the Iwan into the interiors of this wonder, one gets mesmerized by the artistic abilities of the creators. With elements like “The Moonlight Garden” and “Charbagh” (other gardens) amongst a few more complimenting this splendour, it calls for prayers for its longevity.
The Taj, as it became prevalent among the newer generations, is a marvel that is cherished by many around the world but its make can be traced way back to the 16th Century when Shah Jahan designed it to perfection in the fond memory of his most beautiful wife Mumtaz Mahal. After the completion of this structure Shah Jahan was overthrown by his son Aurangzeb and was put to house arrest. He watched his marvel through a window pane. Upon his death Shah Jahan was buried in the mausoleum next to his wife. During the time of the Indian Rebellion of 1857, the Taj Mahal was vandalized into disrepair. It was the British Viceroy named Lord Curzon who resurrected the epitome of beauty back to her contour.
The grace is now being spread into the world of entertainment with “Broke Bond” tea makers having used the ad campaign of “Wah Taj” signifying the pun of brilliance in their tea and the historical mastery. There have been many Bollywood movies in which The Taj was portrayed as the eternal symbol of love.
Taj Mahal will always be a perfect substitute for heavens. Nothing can get better than this and even if it does, it will be heavens! Over the years each being must have wondered how such a creation has stood through turmoil, an answer for which even the creator might ponder, such is the elegance and strength of her.
