Architecture of Taj Mahal

The architecture of Taj Mahal is well thought-out as the superlative example of Mughal style of structural designing. Its architecture is immensely inspired from scores of styles of architecture, which consist of Italian, Persian, Turkish and Indian. Taj Mahal not only considers as a world heritage monument but is also mentioned in the register of mind-blowing Seven Wonders of the World. The layout and design of Taj Mahal do not overlook to win over numerous engineers, historians, architects together with a common man. While looking at this overwhelming edifice, your eyes will be gawked at the rounded dome of Taj Mahal, the credit of its architecture goes to Ismail Khan. It is a giant dome titivated in complete white marble and thus emerges as a true sensation of marvel. This very picturesque rounded dome of Taj Mahal in Agra, Uttar Pradesh is also renowned as onion dome or a guava dome. You will also bump into a lotus design imprinted atop the dome, which further enlarges its tallness. So, one can really say that the composition of Taj Mahal is an exceptional merge of Hindu plus Persian architecture.

Furthermore, the architecture of Taj Mahal is a major draw because of displaying a bronze spire at the top of dome. This bronze spire was alleged to be erected of solid gold until it was looted subsequent to the declining of Mughal rule in the 19th Century. Yet again, the exquisite blend of Hindu and Persian design can be seen on the finial which is topped by a hemispherical twisted moon whose horns dot towards the universe above.

Nevertheless, the architecture of this glorious Taj Mahal also puts on display the four minarets placed in each corner reaching up to an incredible elevation of 40 meters. These minarets are radiantly designed, owing to their consistent significance in all Muslim formations. The minarets were specially positioned towards the exterior boundary of entire edifice to get rid of damages that would take place due to the occurrence of earthquake. However, these minarets are delightfully imprinted with elaborate designs and had partly prized gems festooned at one moment in time.
