The Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal

in the 17th century (1600’s) There was a building built by the Indian emperor Shah Jahan it was built for an tomb and he called it the Taj Mahal. It was built out of white marbles so that every time the sun changed so did the marbles . He built it for his favourite wife Mumtaz Mahal. It was completely symmetrical, it was  81 metres high that is the same as a 20 story house. It had a massive entrance and no vehicles were allowed in with fuel. There was a mosc on the left side and a mosc on the right that was completely symmetric. When The emperor's wife died  The in 1629 giving birth the emperor hired 27,000 men to make the Taj Mahal and it took 18 years.It was built on the banks of the scared Jumna river.
