More Taj Mahal Entrance

The entrance courtyard and buildings are made of red sandstone with all marble inlays. If you look at the previous pictures of the entrance building, you might be able to see the writing on the face of the building. From a distance it looks like paint, but it's all inlaid marble, and the detail is amazing. This monument took 22 years to build, and was finished in 1653.

Looking through the arch of the entrance building, you can see the Taj Mahal.
