The Taj Mahal, a universally admired masterpiece, sits on the right bank of the Yamuna River in Uttar Pradesh, India. The Mughal emperor Shah Jahan built this white marble mausoleum between 1631 and 1648 in memory of his wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Many consider the Taj Mahal to be the greatest Indo-Islamic architectural achievement, and it attracts more than 6 million visitors a year. It was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1983.
