India, home to numerous beautiful monuments, has a style and architecture easily recognizable all over the world. Treasured relics of the past stand in the country as mementos to like, battles, religion and government.India well known throughout the world for its exquisite architectural beauty and heritage. There's a large number of monuments in the country, which showcase not just its architectural legacy, but additionally its history and culture. All the popular monuments in India come with an aura of mystery, intrigue and romance surrounding them. From forts to palaces to memorials to tombs to temples to churches, the nation has it all.

Amritsar Golden Temple

The Golden Temple in Amritsar is the holiest place for Sikhs, and one of the most beautiful buildings I have seen in my life. The white marble walls and walkways, the golden cupolas and the Amrit Sarovar where pilgrims bathe around the temple are simply stunning, but it is also the peaceful, almost magical atmosphere inside the temple complex that makes one of the most special sacred sites in India.

Pavaya Stone Temples

In Pavaya, about four hours south of Agra and the Taj Mahal, and an hour and a half from Gwalior, two stone temples await those who brave the bumpy roads and lack of amenities to make the trek. The first of two complexes, Pavaya was once the capital of the Naga kings. While it appears that some of the past is still hidden in the earth waiting for its excavation, four main structures are available for exploration. These buildings give an insight to the beauty of the architecture of India with domed roofs, decorative windows and arched doorways.

The Taj Mahal

Taj mahal is a best object of Indian culture. The most famous monument in India is, of course, the Taj Mahal. A Unesco world Heritage Site, the Taj was built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal in the 17th century. The construction work took two decades and involved thousands of craftsmen, but the result is one of the most famous buildings in the world.
