A very well-known English poet said that "Not a piece of architecture, as other buildings are, but the proud passions of an emperor's love wrought in living stones".

First of all, it's one of a kind monument which was built by a man for his wife and second it's among the most beautiful monuments in the World. Dozens of titles were given to the monument, but the actual beauty of the Taj cannot be described in simple words.
The story behind this monument takes back you about 350 years when Mumtaj Mahal, the beloved wife of Shah Jahan died while giving birth to her 14th child. The India's Emperor was madly in love with his wife, his wife asked him to build a monument that had never been existing on the earth. He instantly gave the orders to build his monument, artisans from different parts of the World brought I Agra to give this mausoleum in shape. About 25,000 workers started building themonument. The finest quality of white marble brought from Makrana, a town in Rajasthan. It took 22 years to complete the construction of this marvelous monument.
After the completion of this stunning monument the Emperor cut-off the hands of the workers who built Taj Mahal, just to ensure that no one can recreate this monument. Today, the charisma of that the original masterpiece has no other monument can replicate it. No other monument has the same beauty and elegance that Taj Mahal has.

It is our second milestone in a beautiful journey of Mughals era, fondly known as the sister of taj. The Agra Fort is a massive fort depicting the rich history and eclectic culture of Mughal Empire. The fort was built to serve the residence to the royal family and stands as the capital of Empire. It remained one of the most powerful forts in ancient India. Nowadays, it is converted into a museum which homes the several belongings of Mughals and their empire, including the armory, costume, and others.
When Mughal Emperor Akbar decided to exceed his empire in central and southern India, he needed a better place than Delhi to operate his empire. Agra remained his first preference due to its proximity with Rajasthan (then Rajputana) and Maratha Empire. To form his newly built capital, he started the construction of the Agra Fort. After many years, the Fort was built and became the most powerful forts in ancient India. That time, the Agra Fort used to serve as the residence of the Mughal Empire but more prominently as their capital, and it served the motive for many decades before the capital was moved back to Delhi due to some defeats Akbar had toface.
Today, the fort is maintained by the Architectural survey of India and is included in the list of UNESCO World heritage sites.
