India has become very popular with tourists in recent years. This beautiful country has so much to offer not just in terms of scenery but also its wonderful historical places.
The crowning glory of India is the Taj Mahal. Constructed by Emperor Shah Jahan, in the memory of Mumtaz Mahal, his wife, this marble monument is the 'symbol of love'. Built overlooking River Yamuna, the monument was built to enshrine the body of Mumtaz. The design and structure of the monument with an impressive garden, reflective pond, semi-precious stones embedded in the marbles and engravings from Koran is a specimen of architectural brilliance.
Hawa Mahal of the pink city of Jaipur, Rajasthan is another prominent attraction of India. Built in the year 1799, the palace is a five-storey edifice, The Hawa Mahal is located on the edge of the City Palace complex of Jaipur and is replete with hundreds of screened windows and balconies. The building is smaller than other palaces but the pink hue of the palace and the honeycombed stone work enhance the royal appeal of the palace.
