This article clearly shows the beautification of the Mughal art and architecture. Taj Mahal made by Shahjahan for his beloved wife, and the art of this place makes many to wonder. The historians of that era wrote in a very clear manner that this art piece will be thoughtful for the people in the coming time, and people will remember its architecture for years. And the same thing happened. The Taj Mahal is not only the tomb of the Mumtaz Mahal, but it was an opening for those who love nature and beautiful places. The Shahjehan has made many other places like the gardens and palaces. Each of these places made by one and same emperor shows his love for the art and the architecture of these buildings reveal that how nicely they are made. The writer of this article showed his eagerness for the Mughal art. For that purpose, he visited many Mughal places and did research in it. But according to the writer when in Agra was working on Red Fort, the building of Taj Mahal never went out of my mind and out of my sight. The extreme perfection in its making and the grand size can take away any one’s emotions. While working on the Taj Mahal, the writer said that examined closely each and every corner of the building and made me astonished how the workers of that time made such a perfect place. The building has so much appealing effect that other buildings in its surroundings get less attention. The other buildings in its surroundings are also constructed by the Mughal emperor. The writer has mentioned the dimensions of the whole building. He has measured it from inside and outside. The tomb inside the Taj Mahal and its distance from the court yard and other surroundings and the gardens, all are measured by the writers as part of his survey.
Mughal time Agra had many buildings along the lining of River Jumna. And many gardens also in Agra named mostly after the Mughal Emperors. These gardens after British Rule were still owned by the members of these families, by Nawabs of that time. The Taj gardens show the perfect architect of those times.
The writer then walks the southern gate and found an area known as Taj Gunj; that was a part of Taj Mahal once. The Taj Mahal was not only limited to the Taj Mahal compound only; it had gardens and the living area of people. The writer says that I wanted to reconstruct the whole place, and include those places in the TajMahal compound, which were once the part of Taj Mahal. These buildings show that Agra was an urban area with civilized living.
There have been no written architecture theories found from the time of Mughal Emperors. But still they constructed with perfection and such an art which still no one can make. By studying various places of Mughal art, there are resemblances in each construction. These buildings are built with some principles.
Geometrical planning, symmetry, use of proportional formulas, use of naturalism, these are few principles, according to writer are seen in every building of the Mughals. As in Taj Mahal the same principles are used. There is perfect symmetry along a central axis and on which all the main features of the building are based. Similarly, the shapes are all made in one uniform structure. All the columnar support has the same uniform shape. The love to nature is truly depicted in the construction of these buikdings.
The entire architect is supporting the idea of pure paradisiac emotions. All those historians, who have written about its architect, have one thing in common, and that one thing is the love for nature and showing a sense of paradise in each and every building of Mughals. The tomb of the Mumtaz Mahal depicts the true place for those who get a place in paradise.
