| The Taj Mahal, India
The Taj Mahal is another beautiful world landmark. It is featured on traveling brochures, magazines, and websites. It is more beautiful in real life than in pictures. Many visitors are overwhelmed by its beauty. Shah Jahan built it, making it a tomb for his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal (and later himself). It was built between 1632-1653. It is built of marble and other precious gems such as sapphire, topaz, coral, etc. Around the Taj Mahal are gardens that symbolize paradise. This is definately not a site to miss in India.
