History of Taj Mahal

Let’s start with a brief history of the Taj Mahal as my school teacher is used to tell me and what I read about this monument.


As we all know that the idea of making Taj Mahal is introduced by Shah Jahan. He established this monument for her beautiful wife Mumtaz. People believe that shah Jahan’s wife is a very beautiful lady who comes to form heaven

The real name of shah Jahan is “Shahab-ud-din Muhammad Khurram”. The Shah Jahan title is given by their kingdom people. He born on 5 January 1592 Pakistan ( Lahore) and died on 22 January 1666 (aged 74).

His father’s name is Jahangir and her mother is Jagat Gosain. Shah Jahan is the most powerful kingdom between 1628 to 1658, who ruled on India. He was the fifth Mughal emperor.

The structure was designed by Ustad Ahmed Lahouri and Ustad Isa. The project was launched in 1632 by the Mughal emperors. It took 20years and 20,000 workers to complete this monument also, around 1000 elephants are used to transport the material of taj mahal.

The taj mahal spread around 42 acres area and the height of this monument is 73 meters. the dimension is 1700000 sq.m complex; the 57-meter base and raised platform height are 6m. The calculated cost of this monument is 32 crore Indian rupees. There are a total of eight chambers in the monument.
