It is said that different types of precious and semi-precious stones were used in the intricate inlay work done on the interiors.
This magnificent monument is set around a Charbagh or 'four garden' plan, which is split by watercourses-a reflection of the Persian style. (TAJ MAHAL IS CLOSED ON FRIDAYS).
