    In 1983, Taj Mahal became a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was referred as “the jewel of Muslim art in India’’. It stands grandly by the banks of river Yamuna. The white marble was brought from Makrana in Rajasthan. Semi-precious stones used for interior decor were sourced from all over India , Afghanistan and Ceylon. The monument is situated in the centre of the Mughal garden. A beautiful reflection of the tomb can be seen in the raised marble water tank at the centre of the garden.
