About Taj Mahal’s Design

The Designing sense and concept of the Taj Mahal is very Creative.The Concept of Tajmahal was inspired from Mughal buildings like the Gur-e Amir (the tomb of Timur in Samarkand), Humayun’s Tomb, Itmad-Ud-Daulah’s Tomb, and Shah Jahan’s own Jama Masjid in Delhi.

Sections of the Taj Mahal:

1. Tomb – There are two tombs in the Taj Mahal, one is for Shahjahan and other one is for Mumtaz.
2. Dome – The most creative feature is the marble dome that surmounts the tomb. The marble dome is nearly 35 meters. There is a gilded bronze made finial on the top of marble Dome. The top finial was originally made of gold, but it was replaced by a copy made of gilded bronze in the early 19th century. This top finial provides a clear example of integration of Persian tradition and Hindu decorative elements. The finial is topped by a moon, a typical Islamic motif whose horns points heavenward. It depicts like Lord Shiva’s Trident.

3. Four minarets(Towers) – The most important and safe side pillar of Tajmahal is four minarets and each one is more than 40 meters (130 ft) tall. The four minarets are constructed slightly outside so that at the time of collapse, a typical occurrence with many tall constructions of the period, the garbage material of the towers would tend to fall away from the tomb.
