BLACK TAJ MAHAL

There is a legend that Shah Jahan planned to build a black marble mausoleum, known as the Black Taj, directly opposite the Taj Mahal across the Yamuna River. However, this plan was never realized1.

The construction of the Taj Mahal involved over 22,000 laborers and 1,000 elephants. It took approximately 22 years to complete, from 1632 to 1653
