Described as the most extravagant monument ever built for love, this Taj Mahal has become the de facto tourist emblem of India. It was constructed by Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his second wife, Mumtaz Mahal, whose death in childbirth in 1631 left the Emperor so heartbroken that his hair is said to have turned grey overnight. The monument is located just five minutes from The Oberoi Amarvilas. The resort can arrange transfers to and from The Oberoi Amarvilas in battery operated environment friendly buggies. The Taj Mahal is open for night viewing five nights per month, on full moon and two nights prior and two nights after.
