The Taj Mahal is considered the finest example of Mughal architecture, a style that combines elements from
Persian, Indian, and Islamic architectural styles. In 1983, the Taj Mahal became a UNESCO World Heritage
Site and was cited the jewel of Muslim art in Indiaand one of the universally admired masterpieces of the
world's heritage. While the white domed marble mausoleum is its most familiar component, the Taj Mahal
is an actually an integrated complex of structures. Building began around 1632 and was completed around
1653, and employed thousands of artisans and craftsmen.
