Taj Mahal, also spelled Tadj Mahall, is a mausoleum complex located in northern India, on the southern side of the Yamuna River. Construction on the Taj Mahal began in 1632, and the main building was complete until 1653. Emperor Shah Jahan had the Taj Mahal, which translates to crown of palaces, built to immortalize his wife Mumtaz Mahal.
Featuring both Persian and Islamic architectural styles, the Taj Mahal is an architectural marvel made of white marble. The acoustics inside the main dome can cause a single note of a flute to reverberate five times.
The Taj Mahal was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1983.
