Reflecting in the pools, the Taj Mahal is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Built on the request of the emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved wife, who died give birth. It took 20 thousand people to realize the mausoleum and about 20 years. Located by the Yamuna River, the construction is made of white marble and entirely encrusted of semi-precious stones.
