The Taj Mahal is also known as "the Taj". It is a white marble tomb located in Agra in India. Do you know the story behind the Taj Mahal? The Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan loved his wife Mumtaz Mahal more than his life. Mumtaz died at an early age. Shah Jahan was very shocked at his wife's death. So he built the Taj Mahal as a token of love for his wife. It is the place where Mumtaz is sleeping for ever.

The Taj has an area of about 1003 acres or 405 hectares. The Taj Mahal is the finest example of Mughal architecture. It combines the art of Persia, Turkey, and India. It took 21 years and thousands of artisans and craftsmen to complete the Taj Mahal. The Taj is universally admired as one of the wonders of the world. [Lesson - 22(C)]

বঙ্গানুবাদ :  

‘তাজমহল’ তাজ হিসেবেও পরিচিত। এটা ভারতের আগ্রায় অবস্থিত একটা সাদা মার্বেল পাথরের সমাধিসৌধ। তুমি কি তাজমহল নির্মাণের নেপথ্য গল্পটি জানো? মুঘল সম্রাট শাহজাহান তার স্ত্রী মমতাজ মহলকে তার জীবনের চেয়েও বেশি ভালোবাসতেন। মমতাজ অল্প বয়সেই মারা গিয়েছিলেন। শাহ্জাহান তার স্ত্রীর মৃত্যুতে প্রচণ্ড আঘাত পেয়েছিলেন। তাই তিনি ভালোবাসার প্রতীক হিসেবে তার স্ত্রীর জন্য তাজমহল তৈরি করেছিলেন। এটাই সেই স্থান যেখানে মমতাজ চিরতরে ঘুমিয়ে আছেন।
তাজ প্রায় ১০০৩ একর অথবা ৪০৫ হেক্টর এলাকাজুড়ে আছে। তাজমহল হলো মুঘল স্থাপত্যের সবচেয়ে সুন্দর উদাহরণ। এটাতে পারস্য, তুরস্ক এবং ভারতবর্ষের শিল্পকলার সমন্বয় ঘটেছে। তাজমহলটি তৈরি করতে হাজার হাজার মিস্ত্রি ও কারিগরের ২১ বছর সময় লেগেছিল। তাজটি সার্বজনীনভাবে বিশ্বের অন্যতম বিস্ময় হিসেবে প্রশংসিত।
