Nearly every big or small culture in our large history has sought to honor the divine, the mysterious, in some way or other . Most often this happens at sacred sites
However there is no need to be a believer to recognise that holy places, religious architecture, and sacred art are some of the most amazing and interesting sites you'll see in your life.
These places are so enchanting that it's impossible for anyone to resist it. In these sites the physical world seems to meet the spiritual world and only a peaceful feeling are all you can feel.
One of these spectacular sites is Taj Mahal.
Such an amazing building was constructed between 1631 and 1654 in Agra, a city that nowadays is called the city of Taj, near a river called Jamuna, by a Muslim emperor :Shah Jahan of the Mughal dynasty. Shah Jahan made Taj as a symbol of his love for his wife who died while she was giving birth to her and shah jahan's daughter.
Taj is considered the finest example of Mughal architecture, a style that combines more than perfectly the basic elements of Islamic, Persian, and Indian architecture.
Taj has several gardens around the main building. There are also some secondary buildings around Taj which were made at the same time as Taj. Usually there are a lot of tourists at Taj enjoying the atmosphere at the place or simply because they are interested in the architecture. A lot of people consider Taj as a holy place and they usually worship there. The Taj, which was traditionally just a tomb is now a sacred place which is visited by people around the world. Though most of these people does not even know that taj is a tomb.
Taj is a clear example of how something as sinister as a tomb can become something that people worship.
