Described by Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore as “the tear-drop on the cheek of time”, it is regarded by many as the best example of Mughal architecture and a symbol of India’s rich history. It was declared a winner of the New 7 Wonders of the World (2000–2007) initiative. The Taj Mahal was commissioned by Shah Jahan in 1631, to be built in the memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal. Construction of the Taj Mahal began in 1632. The imperial courts documenting Shah Jahan’s grief after the death of Mumtaz Mahal illustrate the love story held as the inspiration for Taj Mahal. The Taj Mahal complex is believed to have been completed in its entirety in 1653 at a cost estimated at the time to be around 32 million rupees, which in current times would be approximately 52.8 billion Indian rupees (US $ 827 million). The construction project employed some 20,000 artisans under the guidance of a board of architects led by the court architect to the emperor, Ustad Ahmad Lahauri

The development of Indo-Islamic architecture began in earnest with the establishment of Delhi Sultanate in 12th Century. Series of Central Asian dynasties that consolidated much of North India, these dynasties introduced Persianate, Turkic and Islamicate architecture and art styles from Western Eurasia into the Indian subcontinent. The types and forms of large buildings, with mosques and tombs much the most common, were very different from those previously built in India. The exteriors of such buildings are often capped by large domes, and make extensive use of arches. Buildings initially adapted the skills of a workforce trained in earlier Indian traditions to their own designs. Unlike most of the Islamic world, where brick tended to predominate, India produced highly skilled builders trained in the creation of extremely high-quality masonry.
