In my country there are many historical monuments. My country is known for its rich cultural heritage. I am from the capital city and there we have many old buildings, some are from Mughal era and some represents the British era. As I have great interest towards history that’s why I have visited many of them like Red Fort, Old Fort and Qutub Minar.
Recently my college organised a historical trip to Agra as this city is famous for the most famous monument of our country that is the Taj Mahal. It is situated on the banks of the river Yamuna and is surrounded by a beautiful garden. The mausoleum is made entirely out of white marble and decorated with many other precious stones.. It is one of the most beautiful historical buildings. It is also one of the seven wonders in the world. This is very famous among people as a symbol of love. It was built by the Mughal emperor, Shahjahan in the memory of his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who died during child birth. It took 20 years of time to construct this pristine beauty. But it has one more story behind it that Shahjahan chopped off the hands of the architect who designed the whole idea of this building. It is said that he never wanted that the world has another monument like Taj Mahal.
It is considered as one of the most romantic tourist spots in the world. Many tourists from all parts of the world come to India to see the beauty of this token of love.
