The architecture of Taj Mahal is considered as the finest specimen of Mughal style of architecture. The architecture of Taj Mahal is highly inspired from different styles of architecture, which includes Persian, Indian and Turkish. Considered as a world heritage monument and one of the wonders of the world, The main object of focus of the Taj Mahal is the rounded dome. The massive dome done in white marble is a truly marvelous piece of architecture. The base of the Taj Mahal has four minarets in each corner. The minarets are brilliantly designed, as they are an essential part of any Muslim structure. Each minaret is built in such a way that it slants a bit towards the outer edge of the whole construction. This was done so as to prevent any kind of damage to the monument in case of an earthquake. The minarets are beautifully carved with intricate designs and had semi precious gems studded at one point of time.
