427 words short essay on visit to my favorite Place - Taj Mahal
There are many beautiful and worth seeing historical places in India. But the Taj Mahal of Agra is the most beautiful of all. It is a dream in marble. My friends and I visited the Taj in the last summer vacation majesty. The vision cast a spell over me. It stood in unique majesty. What a fine lay-out indeed! This is what one could say on the spot. It looked white on sides. The green tufts of grass and the green shoots of the Cyprus trees adorned its majestic beauty. Nature's beauty made the ground of the building look all the more beautiful.
We went down the staircase. We found the graves of the King and the Queen under the dome in a dark chamber. Multi-coloured pieces of glass and couplets from the Quran decorated the side walls. The four minarets stood as watchmen at each corner of the main building.
A full moonlight followed in a couple of days. We visited the Taj again that night. Its beauty smiled in the silvery light of the moon. It was a sight for the Gods to see. My joy knew no bounds when I saw its reflection in the river Jamuna. A clear picture of marble could be seen. I closed my eyes opened them again to find if it was a reality. Nay, it was not a dream. As God is there to bestow Nature's beauty, man's hand is there to create wonderful pieces of art and architecture. How could man be so perfect in working out the minute details of art? I am full of wonder even now. And can still see the beauty of the Taj with my mind's eye, if at all I desire so. What a great beauty man could create!
It is not wrong to say that the Taj is a dream in marble. It has a rare charm that casts its magic spell on visitors both from India and abroad who would have thought that a fanciful thought of love-lorn emperor would become a world famous monument. The Taj has become synonymous with India and the Mughals. It is a much awaited visit to Agra and the Taj that every couple young and old look forward to. The calm Yamuna that flows by its side adds to its beauty and majesty. I can never forget this visit as perhaps no visitor can who has known what love is.
The Taj Mahal built about three hundred years ago by the Mughal Emperor Shahjahan, in the memory of his beloved Queen, Mumtaj Mahal.
