The Story of the Taj Mahal

The Story of a Majestic place

The Begining

Picture a tall white marble palace sitting on the bank of a river. That would be a great site to see. Well actually it's the Taj Mahal.

The construction

Why was the Taj Mahal built in the first place? Well the Taj Mahal was built for Shan Jahans wife Mumtaz Mahal. She died during the birth of their 13th child. So he decided to build a tomb for her because she was one of his favorite wives and he named it after her. He got 20,000 workers to build it and it took them approximately 22 years to build it 1631 to 1635.

Present Day

The Taj Mahal has been standing for almost hundreds of years. I think it will be standing for many more years. It is now a tour site were 2 to 3 million people visit a year. Also Shan Jahan is now at rest with his wife in the Taj Mahal.
