The Taj Mahal what an incredible place

The Taj Mahal was built for the 3rd wife of Emperor Shah Jahan, On her bead she ask to built the most incredible, incomparable, and beautiful palace ever been built before where she could be buried on the year 1749. I know what most of us would do today ….take the money and run, just joking….  It took 22 years to built, mostly out of white marble.  Mumtaz Mahal had 14 children and die after the birth of the last one over some complication. We sure won’t forget her in  a hurry she must have been an incredible women.  Although it is build with white marble, other colours marble where used from about 8 deferents countries including New Zealand. The details on the sculpture are just incredible. Every Tuesday the Taj Mahal is close for the decedents of the architect doing all maintenance and restauration. The architect was Persian and part of the deal he had to stay in India never return to Persia, so he wound’t be able to duplicate is work, is family and descendants would have a job for eternity….
