Pictures of the Taj Mahal from the inside

Quick introduction to the Taj Mahal

Taj Mahal made of ivory-white marble was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in the memory of his wife Mumtaz who died giving birth to their fourteenth child, is located on the banks of the River Yamuna in the city of Agra. The four minarets framing the monument are leaning slightly outwards are perfectly identical and mirrored to provide an optical illusion. Passages from the Koran and ninety-nine names of Allah can be found as calligraphic inscriptions on the tomb. The gemstones embedded in the walls were ripped during the British rule. It is a must visit when you are in India.


Taj Mahal pictures from the inside

Everyone can recognise the Taj from the photos. Have you ever thought what it looks like from the inside? When you visit the Taj you will soon realise that it is not allowed to take pictures of the inside of the Taj. There are a few pictures available but it’s quite basic. To be honest there is not much to see inside anyway. The outside is what matters the most. Here are a few pictures  and videos of the Taj Mahal from the inside.
