A Visit to Taj Mahal

Essay No. 01

The Taj Mahal at Agra is one of the wonders of the world. There are many historical monuments in the world as well as in India but the Taj Mahal is unique in them. It is matchless building. Lakhs of people from India and abroad visit the Taj every year. They don’t tire while commending its beauty. It is majestic in its beauty; such a beauty can be conceived only in a dream. However, the Taj is a reality, but a dreamy reality, so captivating is its beauty.

The Taj Mahal was caused to be built by Mughal Emperor Shahjehan in the memory of his beloved queen Mumtaj Mahal. The Taj has become symbolic of intense love these days.

I along with my several school mates visited the Taj Mahal on the full moon day in October this year. The beauty of the Taj is at its peak under the silvery moonlight spreading all over the place and glamorizing the Taj. Its surroundings are well-decorated with greenery and flower beds. We felt overjoyed to see the Taj. Hundreds of men, women and children had collected there to enjoy the beauty of the Taj. There were large groups of foreigners clicking their cameras. We also posed for photographs.

The Taj is a wonderful dream come true in marble. Its architectural design is superb. It has four minerals on four corners with a onion shaped dome in the center. Couplets from Koran are engraved beautifully on its walls which is again a wonder of calligraphy. Flowery designs are inset with precious coloured stones. Above all it is made up of spotless white marble. We went down the staircase and visited the graves of the emperor and the empress who lie side by side in their graves over there. Nobody is allowed to go there with shoes on ; however, canvas shoes were provided to us by the men on duty outside.

The vision cast a magic spell on me and my friends after seeing it under the full moon that day. We felt that it was a sight fit to be seen by the gods so much inviting the ‘fa; appeared to us that time. The green tufts of grass, and the green shoots of the Cyprus trees adorned its majestic beauty appeared to add to its majestic beauty many times more.

I took objection to a friend’s remarks when he asked what beauty it had but for its marble-made heavy structure. He also stated that many Hindu temples in Rajasthan and South India were far more beautiful than The Taj Mahal. I agreed with him that the Rajputana temples were quite beautiful and also the temples in south India but tried to convince him that so far as the Taj was concerned it had its own unique design and its execution to which he also nodded. Of course, the Taj is supremely beautiful. We felt rewarded after seeing it.
