The majestic Taj Mahal mausoleum is a UNESCO World Heritage site and a globally acclaimed tourist destination. As showcased in this high resolution stock image, the Taj Mahal – a white marble mausoleum was adorned with medieval garden or “Mughal bagh”. Built on 17 hectares or 42 acres of land on the southern bank of the Yamuna river at Agra, India, the Taj Mahal took 20 years for completion from 1632-1653 AD and the estimated cost (in the 17th century) was estimated at 32 million rupees (nearly 1 million US dollars). The Taj Mahal mausoleum was constructed using materials from all over India and Asia. Nearly twenty thousand artisans and craftsmen worked on the site and over 1,000 elephants were used to transport building materials. The translucent white marble was brought from Makrana, Rajasthan, jasper from Punjab, jade and crystal from China. The turquoise was from Tibet and the Lapis lazuli from Afghanistan, while the sapphire came from Sri Lanka and the carnelian from Arabia. In all, twenty-eight types of precious and semi-precious stones were inlaid into the white marble extensively.
