The Taj Mahal is a mausoleum made of white marble in the Indian city of Agra. The monument stands by the bank of the Jamuna river.

It took about 20 years to complete building Taj Mahal, which was commissioned in 1632. It also houses the tomb of Shah Jahan. The tomb is built in 42-acre land. The complex includes a mosque and a guest house. UNESCO designated the Taj Mahal as the UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983.
