The Taj Mahal in Agra, India

The Taj Mahal in Agra, India is perhaps one of the most beautiful and stunning pieces of architecture in the world. It was built as a mausoleum where the Mughal Emperor known as Shah Jahan was to bury his wife Mumtaz Mahal.

The construction of the Taj Mahal began in 1632 and was not completed until 1653. The building’s architecture draws from not only Mughal styles but also Ottoman, Islamic, Persian, and more. Visitors from around the world flock to Agra to see the domed marble ceiling and spectacular artistry as well as to pay their respects.

The peak tourist time is November to February. Summer (April to June) is hot and humid with occasional heat waves and dust storms. The monsoon season is June to September. Winter (October to March) is cool with cold spells. Heavy fog occurs during winter, particularly December to January. The best time for a trip to the Himalayas is summer.
