About 350 years ago,
India's symbol of love was built-
On the banks of Yamuna river,
And still stands tall without a tilt!
Emperor Shahjahan created it
As his testament of love for sure-
For his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal,
Who died in childbirth with pains to endure!
Taj Mahal, the world famous monument,
Was built by 20,000 people over 22 years-
And completed in 1654,
With cultural extravaganza and cheers!
It stands on a marble platform,
Surrounded by ornamental gardens-
While white minarets grace each corner,
And reduce the viewers mental burdens!
Two smaller sandstone buildings
Balance the beauty with a perfect image-
And attracts the global tourists
Since its existence to this age!
This mausoleum evokes beauty
And love In moonlit night-
And remains as a fitting tribute
To enhance the tourists' sight!
Today, we celebrate your birthday,
To let the world know about 'Unforgettable You'-
'Cause you are the symbol of love,
And inspire the generations with own hue!!
