The Taj Mahal in Agra, India.

An instantly recognizable symbol of India — and perhaps the world’s most famous monument to love — the Taj Mahal was built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan as a tomb for his wife Mumtaz Mahal, who died in childbirth. Part of a complex that took over 20 years to build, the marble mausoleum was finished in 1648. Take a photo tour with the gallery above.
