Talk of love and Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet would be put to shame by the love Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan had for his wife Yamuna. I mean, he even erected a mausoleum built of pure white marble for her.

Talk of love and Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet would be put to shame by the love Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan had for his wife Yamuna. I mean, he even erected a mausoleum built of pure white marble for her.

That this mausoleum is the premier attraction to visitors in India is not in doubt. The 1653 masterpiece would cost a whopping US$ 827 million were it to be constructed today. That is why Taj Mahal is a World Wonder that has been inscribed into the UNESCO heritage sites and receives an upward of 3 million visitors every year. Let it feature at the top of your bucket list. It is a destination you will not regret visiting.
