THE BUILDING: Taj Mahal was built in 1632-1653 and is today 1983 at UNESCO's list of world heritage. 20,000 people worked with the construction of the building. The main architect was Ustad Ahmad from Lahore. Nothing was spared on the construction of Taj Mahal built with materials from all over India and Asia.
More than 1,000 elephants were used to transport the building materials. The white marble was imported from Rajastan, Japis from Punjab and Jade and crystals from China, Turquoise from Tibet, Lasursteen from Afghanistan. The sapphires are from Sri Lanka and Carnet from Saudi Arabia. Total, 28 different gems were incorporated in the white marble!

The central part of the mausoleum is surrounded by four identical minarets, which are built with a slope outward so that in the case of an earthquake they will crash to the ground away from the mausoleum itself. To the left of the monument there is a mosque of red sandstone. The mosque was built to sanctify the area and create a room for pilgrims. On the right, there is a faithful copy of the mosque, known as Jawab, which is exclusively built for the sake of symmetry. However, the building is not used as mosque as it does not have the correct position in relation to Mecca

The architect standing behind the construction got his hands hugged off when the construction was finished. This should prevent him from builting a similar one.

When it was built, Shah Jahan had a desire to build a similar Taj Mahal on the other side of the river. It should just be black. However, he died before it should be built.
