impressive quarters and the mosque while Aurangzeb added the outer ramparts.
The Taj Mahal is everything that has been said about it and more. Taking 22 years and 20,000
men to build, the white marble was quarried 200 miles away and was transported to the site
by a fleet of 1000 elephants. Built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as an expression of his
