Truly one of the world’s greatest architectural feats, the Taj Mahal complex in Agra, India was built by the Emperor Shah Jahan in honor of his wife Arjuman Banu Begum, between 1630 and 1653. The seat of the Mughal Empire, the Taj’s buildings together combine Indian, Persian, and Turkish architecture.
