India has some of the most attractive and reminiscent monuments in the world. These monuments of India are indebted to the thoughts and ideas of great men. As kings and emperors, they were able to transform their ideas into reality. These monuments of India range through a span of centuries and the chief values and viewpoints of the world. The historical monuments in India display a merge of various styles. Different rulers conquered India and ruled for a long period of time. At the end of their rule, India was gifted with a rich inheritance of archaeological legacy. Among all era, Mughal era is called the 'Golden Period of Architecture'.

 

Many of the great monuments of India had lost it beauty however a new wave for national awakening, and connections with the outside world in the19th and 20th century helped many Indians to look deep in their past. This awakening helped them taking back from the ruins the symbols from a golden age of India .

Following are the famous Monuments in India :

 
Taj Mahal

The Taj Mahal, often called the most beautiful building in the world is in the city of Agra . It was built by the Mughal emperor Shahjahan in remembrance of his dearly loved wife Mumtaz Mahal. The Taj Mahal is widely considered the finest example of Mughal architecture, a style that unites elements of Persian, Indian and Islamic. The Taj Mahal has attained unique significance because of the romance of its inspiration. While the white domed marble mausoleum is the most familiar part of the monument, the Taj Mahal is actually an integrated complex of structures.

 
Qutab Minar

The word 'Qutub' itself means 'pole of justice.' The Qutub Minar made of red sandstone rising to the height of 72.5mts is an architectural wonder of the 13th century. It is located in Delhi and was build by Qutb-ud-din Aibak in the 12th century to commemorate the triumph of Mohammed Ghori over the Rajputs and was completed in the 13th century by his successors. The structure was also probably built as a Minar,or place to call the faithful to prayer.

It is often viewed as a symbol of the military might of the Turko-Afghan dynasty and Islam.
India Gate

India Gate is a royal high arch, 42 meters high, built as a commemorative to the Indian soldiers killed in the World War I. It is called the All India War Memorial. The foundation stone was laid by His Royal Highness, the Duke of Connaught in 1921 and was designed by Edwin Lutyens. The monument was dedicated to the nation 10 years later by the then Viceroy, Lord Irwin. Another memorial, Amar Jawan Jyoti was added much later, after India got its independence.

.It is in the form of a flame that burns day and night under the arch to remind the nation of soldiers who laid down their lives in the Indo-Pakistan War of December 1971.

 
Red Fort

Built mainly as a military establishment by Akbar in 1565, the red sandstone Agra fort was partly converted into a palace during Shah Jahan's time. Though the major structure was built by Akbar, many more additions were made by his grandsons. This massive fort is 2.5kms long and is considered as the predecessor of the Delhi Red fort. The colossal walls are 20 feet high and the whole fort is encircled by a moat. Amar Singh gate towards the south is the only entry point in the fort.

The building and structures inside the fort gives an impression of a city within the city. Many of the buildings inside the fort are now closed for the public. The marble pearl mosque inside the fort is one of the most attractively beautiful mosques in India .

 

Meenakshi Temple

Madurai or "the city of nectar" is the oldest and second largest city of Tamil Nadu . This city is located on Vaigai River and was the capital of Pandyan rulers. The Pandyan king, Kulasekhara had built a stunning temple around which he created a lotus shaped city. It has been a center of learning and pilgrimage, for centuries. Legend has it that the divine nectar falling from Lord Shiva's locks gave the city its name - 'Madhurapuri', now known as " Madurai ".

The Sri Meenakshi Sundareswara temple and Madurai City originated together. The structures that are standing today date mostly from the twelfth to the eighteenth century. They occupy a vast space, 258-m by 241m. There are the two main shrines, no less than twelve Gopuras, a pool and innumerable Mandapas. At every turn there is superb sculpture, magnificent architecture .

Charminar

Hyderabad is most famed for its pleasant minarets - Charminar. The city is often recognized with the majestic Charminar, which stands at the center of the old city in its total magnificence amidst the colorful shops of Ladbazaar with its sparkling traditional bangles. Often called "The Arc de Triomphe of the East", Charminar was built in 1591 by Mohammed Quli Qutb Shah and is a beautiful structure with four intricately carved minarets. Enormous in its size, this imposing monument radiates a charm that is more than 400 years old!

The Charminar is a square edifice with four grand arches each facing a cardinal point that opened once upon a time into four royal streets. At each corner stands an exquisitely shaped minaret, more than 55 meters high with a double balcony. A bulbous dome crowns each minaret with dainty petal like designs at the base.
