A Visit to a Historical Building


A Visit to a Historical Place


The Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal is the most magnificent building in India.

It is called ‘one of the seven wonders of the world.
The first time I visited the Taj many years ago, I simply felt captivated. I found numerous Indian and foreign visitors pouring in. Once one approaches the building one feels lost to move away from it. Even if one has to go at last, one feels inclined to visit it again and again.

” It was built by the Moghul Emperor Shah Jahan in the sweet memory of his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Twenty thousand workmen including some European masons worked day and night for twenty years to build it. It cost the Emperor several crores of rupees.
This a blog that provides school essays for children . My aim is to help all those school kids who need help in writing essays as part of their home work/exams.Normally people find it cumbersome to sift through countless composition books each time they need to find an essay. I hope i can solve the problem through this blog.

I had a keen desire to visit this famous building of the world. At last the day came when my long-cherished desire turned into reality. Last year I had an occasion to attend the marriage of a friend of mine.

By noon , we had completed the tour of Red Fort and started our return journey back to school. It was really an unforgettable experience, which apart from being intellectuaaly rewarding , gave us a glimpse of our countries proud history.

This gave me a chance to see this master-piece of artistic design. As I came close to it, I was struck by its unique structure. It is a marvel in marble. We went to the underground room where Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal lie buried.
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 friend and I visited that in the last summer vacations. 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 all sides. The green tufts of glass and the green shoots of hot Cyprus trees adorned its majestic beauty. Nature’s beauty made the ground of the building look all the more beautiful.

Our minds went back to the times of Shah Jahan when he built this building at a high cost.

The Taj is surrounded by a cypress garden on three sides. It is situated on the bank of the river Jamuna which lends charm to its beauty.

The Taj is built on a raised platform. The outstanding spiral minarets enhance its beauty. The marble tombs of Shah J and Mumtaz Mahal are situated in the middle of the main building. They are inlaid with precious stones, on the walls of the building are carved verses from the Holy Koran.

The surroundings and the garden and lustre to its architecture. The beauty of the Taj beggars description.

In the moonlit night, its glory and splender become unique. It is an intoxication and a delight to watch this marvelous feat of workmanship in a full moonlight night.

A full moonlight followed the next day. We visited the Taj again that night. Its beauty smiled in the silvery light of the moon. It was a memorable scene. My joy knew no bounds when I saw its reflections in the river Jamuna. Clear picture of marble could be seen. I closed my eyes and opened them again to find it was a reality. Nay! It was to a dream.

I have seen several buildings but none presents such a glorious view. It is matchless in beauty.

Some historians have named it “the crown of the world.” Someone has rightly called it a ‘poem in marble.’ In short, it is a paradise on earth. It is a thing of beauty and a joy forever.

The Taj is immortal. It may be called beauty concretized in pure white marble and as such a joy forever. But, unfortunately in the present materialistic world, even the beauty of the Taj is at stake because of the effluent sculpture dioxide emitted by the Matura refinery. Let us hope the able scien­tists will do something about it.

The crimson rays of the sun at the time of sunset, enhance its beauty and glory.

My joy knew no bounds on seeing this wonderful building. Its memory will always remain fresh in my mind. My knowledge about the Taj is now first hand.

The Taj Mahal was built about three hundred and fifty years ago by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, in memory of his beloved queen, Mumtaj.

It is quite different form the second hand information which I had got from my books.

I also visited some other historical buildings in Agra Fort. It is a huge buildings that reminds the visitors of the lofty grandeur and the glory of the great Moghul Kings.

During the last three centuries, the glory of the Taj has not dimmed the least. It still commands the first position among the buildings of the world. It stands outside the city of Agra on the banks of river, Yamuna. In order to reach the main building, one has to pass through a huge gateway of red stones. There are symmetrical cypress trees sur­rounding the building.

I then went to Fatehpur Sikri where I saw the famous Buland Darwaza, the Panch Mahal and many other buildings. All these magnificent structures made a deep impression on me but there is nothing to match the beauty of the Taj.
Ther are many important buildings and sructures within the red fort premises.Beyond the Delhi gate is another, larger open space, which originally served as the courtyard of the Diwan-i-Aam, the large pavilion for public imperial audiences with an ornate throne-balcony (jharokha) for the emperor. The columns were painted in gold and there was a gold and silver railing separating the throne from the public.

I was reminded of the English lady who, on seeing the Taj, had said to her husband,” If you promise to build a monument like the Taj in my memory, I am ready to die right now.”
