The White Mausoleum Taj Mahal standing behind the Indian women. It is the mausoleum that Shah Jahan (reigned 1592-1666), the fifth emperor of the Mughal Empire, built in memory of his beloved Mutaz Mahal. The mausoleum is built of marble. It is a representative building of the Mughal Empire, which integrates the traditional Indian and Islamic cultures. From their deep eyes, women seem to see the passage of a long time.
