Some of the tourist attractions

India’s Taj Mahal

Taj MahalAgra Map

The Taj Mahal, is considered to be one of the world’s most magnificent structures.Monument of love, It's a celebration of woman built in marble. It was built between about 1630 to 1650 and was commissioned by Shah Jahan as a memorial to his wife, who died in childbirth. It is located south of Delhi in Agra, where the rulers of the Mughal Empire (1526–1707) built their capital. Local and imported artisans were involved in the construction of this marble mausoleum, which is the finest surviving example of 17th-century Islamic architecture. The building is one of India’s major tourist attractions.

India's Taj Mahal Set to Celebrate 350th Birthday

One of the world's most famous monuments, India's Taj Mahal, celebrates its 350th birthday on Monday with a cultural extravaganza that hopes to pay a fitting tribute to the historic symbol of love. The celebrations, to be held at a famous Mughal fort near the white marble mausoleum in northern India, will start with a release of pigeons and a kite-flying contest before moving to a classical music concert at sunset with the Taj as the backdrop. "This is the start of a six-month celebration aimed at drawing tourists to Agra and the Taj Mahal," D.K. Burman, a senior government official organizing the festivities in the town of Agra, "It's part of our marketing strategy. Although the Taj gets many visitors, you can't stop marketing it. It's like Surf, the detergent, it sells a lot but that doesn't mean you don't market Surf any more." Archaeologists also want to open the Taj for night viewing on full moon nights as part of the celebrations, which are expected to draw millions of visitors to the congested, polluted town of Agra, 125 miles south of New Delhi. Coinciding with the start of celebrations, India's Supreme Court will hear on Monday a petition by the government of Uttar Pradesh state, where Agra is located, seeking the lifting of a ban on allowing visitors to the Taj after sunset. The ban was imposed in 1984 following reports that the monument was a target of militant groups and reinforced in 2000 over concern about preserving the site. But that has in no way reduced the attraction of the Taj, as every day, up to 15,000 people file past the manicured lawns of the imposing structure, built by Emperor Shahjahan as a testament to his love for his wife Mumtaz Mahal, who died in childbirth.

STRESSED BY VISITORS
Historians say Shahjahan consulted experts from the Middle East and Europe as he planned his legacy, which took 20,000 people over 22 years to build. Although there is some dispute about when it was finished, the government and the Archaeological Survey of India say 1654. The Taj Mahal stands on a marble platform surrounded by ornamental gardens. White minarets grace each corner and two smaller red sandstone buildings balance the postcard-perfect image on the banks of the Yamuna River. But the surface of the onion-domed monument became yellow over the years because of automobile fumes, smoke from small factories, a large oil refinery near Agra and funeral pyres at a nearby cremation ground.

Two years ago, authorities used a pack made of brown clay to restore the original whiteness of the mausoleum.
"Pollution is no longer a problem. But the building is stressed because of the huge number of visitors," said D. Dayalan, head of the Archaeological Survey of India in Agra. "Vandalism remains a big threat. The breathing of the visitors can damage the building. Also, so many people walking on the same path for years has caused some abrasion on the floor," he told It may be a monument to love, but the Taj has seen its share of trials and tribulations.
Last year, the Uttar Pradesh government began work on a shopping mall on a river bank near the Taj before it was halted following a row over the plan, which environmentalists said posed a danger to the monument.
When war clouds loomed in 2002, Indian officials drew up a plan to camouflage the monument, one of the seven wonders of the world, with olive green cloth to stop Pakistani jets from spotting it.

Golden Temple

Golden TempleAmritsar Map

Amritsar, as the name suggests, is rightfully a pool of nectar. Located in the state of Punjab, Amritsar is one of the most important pilgrimage centers especially for the Sikhs in the country. The city is characterized by some of the must visit religious, historical as well as contemporary sites of importance. The Golden Temple, where Sikhs from all over the world come to pay their reverence to Guru Granth Sahib and take a dip in the Amrit Saras Kund (Pool of Immortality) for spiritual purification is the major landmark of the place. Amritsar is also characterized by the hard working and warm-hearted people.

Before Sikhism came into origin and the present city came to be known by Amritsar, legends has it that this was the place where, Luv and Kush, the twin sons of Lord Ram, got education and were taught the Ramayana by the learned sage Valmiki.

Today Amritsar is a historical place and a religious hub of the Sikhs. A major part of the city's history revolves around the Golden Temple. Guru Ram Das is supposed to have selected the villages of Tung, Gumtala and Sutanwind to lay the foundation of a new village, which would be a centre for the congregation of Sikhs. Initially, a tank was dug that was completed by Guru Arjan Dev. On the orders of Guru Amar Das, Guru Ram Das then built the Guru ka Chak or the Guru's residence. This House is now known as the Guru ke Mahal (guru's palace). Guru Arjan Dev then invited traders, artistes and craftsmen to settle down in at this place. The place came to be known as Ramdaspur at that time. Later on when the sacred tank (Amrit Sarovar) was completed, Ramdaspur was renamed Amritsar.

Amritsar is approximately 85kms from Jalandhar (Aggarwal Dental Clinic)
