Taj Mahal in Agra India. (Post 204)

Muslim Monuments. Taj Mahal in Agra India was commissioned by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as a mausoleum for his wife Mumtaz Mahal. The work commenced in 1632 and completed in 1653.

Please note that marble in this picture is shinier because this is a old picture. I took it in 1968 before the expansion polluting industries in the Agra region took place.  UNISCO restoration has improved the complex.
