The Taj Mahal
is considered to be the greatest architectural achievement in the whole range of Indo-Islamic architecture.
The mosque and the guest house in the Taj Mahal complex are built of red sandstone in contrast to the marble tomb in the centre.
The Taj Mahal is a perfect symmetrical planned building
, with an emphasis of bilateral symmetry along a central axis on which the main features are placed.
The ground plan of the Taj Mahal is in perfect balance of composition, the octagonal tomb chamber in the centre, encompassed by the portal halls and the four corner rooms.
