Globetrotting Kids: Taj Mahal
from Ethan and Cameron
It was amazing!
Today we took a tour at the Taj Mahal. We took some photos and some jump shots.
The Taj Mahal was being built for 26 years. It was completed In 1648 and people made the Taj Mahal by hand!
Did you know that the Taj Mahal was a tomb? The emperor built it for his wife and he was going to build another one for himself in black but he died in 1666.
Did you know that when they built the Taj Mahal they made the pillars on the four corners lean out so that if they fell they wouldn’t fall on the main structure?
Did you know that the design on the building is “inlay.” That means that they carved into the marble and put colourful stones in for decoration – like a puzzle. :)
We would recommend a visit to every single tourist – unless you already saw it.
