Taj mahal Information and Who Built Taj Mahal

taj mahal

Welcome back everyone to my blog. Today, we will talk about one of the best places among the Seven Wonders of the World, the Taj Mahal. Although you may have heard a lot about the Taj Mahal, today we will provide you with even more interesting information about it that you will surely enjoy. So, let’s get started with our blog.”The other name of Taj Mahal is ‘Roza-e-Munavvara’ 

The ‘Roza-e-Munavvara’  is located in the Agra district of Uttar Pradesh, India. It stands on the right bank of the Yamuna River. This magnificent monument was built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his favorite wife Mumtaz (constructed between 1632 and 1652). The ‘Roza-e-Munavvara’  was initially known as the “Nagnathesvar.”

Shah Jahan had many wives, but Mumtaz Mahal was his favorite. When she passed away, Shah Jahan decided to build the ‘Roza-e-Munavvara’  as a symbol of his love for her. If you want to visit, it’s quite convenient. There’s a railway station and an airport here. Agra is around 235 km from Delhi, and you can easily reach it by regular train or bus. A day is sufficient to explore this place. You can tour the entire Taj Mahal in one day. If you’re coming from a distant location, you can book a hotel here.

 I recommend booking a small hotel since you can’t take all your belongings into the ‘Roza-e-Munavvara’  You’ll need a place to store your stuff, so a hotel will be necessary. Agra is not a very large city, so you can explore comfortably without facing heavy crowds. However, keep in mind that Taj Mahal is a tourist spot as it is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, so there might be a good number of tourists visiting the attractions.

However, if you wish to view the ‘Roza-e-Munavvara’ up close, you need to pay 250 rupees. These changes were implemented a few months ago; previously, you could view it up close for just 50 rupees. The entry timings are from sunrise in the morning until 5 PM in the evening. You can plan your visit accordingly.

If you want to see the ‘Roza-e-Munavvara’  up close, you are required to wear shoe covers, which are available for 10 rupees. There are three entry gates to the Taj Mahal. In the South gate area, the families of the laborers who worked on the Taj Mahal live.

The construction of the ‘Roza-e-Munavvara’  took 22 years to complete. There is a sarai (rest house) where the laborers who built the Taj Mahal used to stay. To reach the picture point of the Taj Mahal, you need to pass through the Sirhi Gate. From there, you can take pictures of the ‘Roza-e-Munavvara’ 

Guides are available at the site, and if you are visiting for the first time, you can hire a guide. In the past, large trees near the fountains obstructed the view of the’Roza-e-Munavvara’ so they were eventually cut down. The ‘Roza-e-Munavvara’  has a total of 16 gardens and 53 fountains, symbolizing the year 1653 when it was completed. Though the fountains were present since 1653, they weren’t operational back then.

Chairs are provided near the fountains for visitors to sit and take photos. The 50 rupee ticket allows you to access the fountains area, but with the 250 rupee ticket, you can explore the interior of the ‘Roza-e-Munavvara’ . Inside, you can also catch a glimpse of the Yamuna River from behind the ‘Roza-e-Munavvara’

Best Time to visit in Taj Mahal  

The best time to visit in  Taj Mahal is in the morning due to the intense afternoon heat. The morning visit offers cooler temperatures and a more enjoyable experience. Near the ‘Roza-e-Munavvara’  you can find shops selling handicrafts, textiles, and the famous Agra petha (a sweet delicacy). The petha is renowned, and there’s a wide variety available.

Outside the ‘Roza-e-Munavvara’ , you can purchase a replica of the Taj Mahal. It’s said that Mumtaz Mahal’s tomb is here; it’s believed that Shah Jahan’s tomb was placed beside his wife’s after his death, symbolizing their eternal love.

The ‘Roza-e-Munavvara’  is made of white marble and changes color throughout the day due to the sunlight. It appears pinkish during sunrise and golden during sunset. It’s mostly white, but over time, due to various factors like pollution and sun exposure, it has acquired a slightly yellowish hue.

It’s important to protect the monument by not touching it with dirty hands. Pollution has also contributed to the color change. To preserve its beauty, one must take care of the environment and not contribute to pollution. While its white color is iconic, the slight pinkish hue during sunset is often considered even more enchanting.

Many visitors take photographs and create drawings of the (‘Roza-e-Munavvara’ ). The best time to visit in Taj mahal  during the colder months to avoid the scorching heat of summer. This concludes today’s blog. Thank you.
