There are many beautiful and worth seeing historical monuments in India. But the Taj Mahal of Agra is the most beautiful of all. It is considered as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It is a dream in marble. My friends and I visited the Taj in the last summer vacation. Nature’s beauty made the ground of the building look all the more beautiful.

We went down the stair case. We found the graves of the Emperor and the Queen under the dome in a dark chamber. Multicoloured pieces of glass and couplets decorated the side walls. The four pillars stood as watchmen at each corner of the main building.

A full moon night followed in a couple of days. We visited the Taj Mahal again that night. We saw the beautiful Taj standing majestically in the silver light of the moon. It was a very beautiful sight. My joy had no bounds when I saw its reflection in the river Jamuna.

The Taj Mahal was built about three hundred years ago by the Mughal Emperor Shajahan for the loving memory of his beloved Queen, Mumtaz Mahal.

I am full of wonder even now that how could man be so perfect in working out this wonder? I can still see the beauty of the Taj with my mind’s eye. I will never forget my visit to the great Taj Mahal.
